Here are some of the photographs I’ve taken in the last seven days around town.
This guy was really cool, although we couldn’t communicate verbally. He didn’t speak English or Spanish, however, we had a fun interaction.
Edgewood Park last week. Wait until you see how flooded it was!!
(left to right) Victor (14), Speedy (20), and Rayshon (20), were on the Green flippin’ out parkour style. You’ll see that in the next photo. The name of their crew is Gravity Rejection. Check out Speedy’s YouTube Chanel: https://www.youtube.com/user/xSpeedy3Gx
I met Scott on the bus and he’s an interesting guy. I learned that he fought in Vietnam, used to drive a tractor trailer across country 3 times a month for 30 years (fish from East to West, produce back), won $20,000 in Vegas on the craps table and an original $20 bet, was married for 37 years, and has a son that’s a musician in New York. We happened to get off at the same stop, then he showed me where he lives and invited me to visit anytime.

I met Hatem while I was photographing Max (in the next photo). Hatem is graduating from Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Yale with a specialty in Arabic & Islamic Studies. He’s also been the lecturer of Arabic Literature at a university in Saudi Arabia. Hatem wants me to take pictures of him during commencement.
Max is about to graduate high school. His family hired me to take photos to commemorate the occasion. This is one of the many photos we got.

Sabir was out and about on his bicycle and old school styled boom box on his back. He’s very excited about the upcoming debut of Spiderman in New Haven this Friday. You might have also seen him riding his bike in a Spidey suit with a redhead on the back.
