I planned on doing this week’s portrait project at Bella Vista, but when I got there nobody was around. I’m not sure if it was the drizzle or the dark, but only two people walked by me in the entire thirty minutes I was there. They both declined to be photographed. After that I decided to relocate to the corner of Ferry Street and Grand Avenue. I stayed there for about forty five minutes and got these photos below. I would have hung out longer, but I sensed that it was time to go, so I did.
After I took the photos, I asked the subjects to describe themselves in one word. Those are in quotations beneath the respective photos.
|Joey, 32 “SURVIVOR”|
|Jose, 53 “NICE”|
|Brothers, Angelviel, 12 “FUN”, and John, 19 “FUNNY”|
|Elijah, 12 “GANGSTA”|
|Bernard, 54 “LAID BACK”|
|Alyzca, 9 “AWESOME”|
|Anastasia, 34 “SPONTANEOUS”|
|Wilson, 36 “HUMBLE”|
|Elijah and Angelviel with their family|
