This is a photo from the summer. We live on a pretty lively street corner. I’m amazed at how fearlessly boys play soccer in the streets with the traffic. This was shot for a series called Soccer On Holiday for the June issue of Norman Einstein’s Magazine.
Along with the many mechanics of my neighborhood, we have a plethora of rusting cars all over the streets. It is one of the reasons why I moved into this neighborhood. I have a thing for rusting cars. These three cars sat at the end of my street for the first month I was there, [...]

Kids went back to school this week. Here is a photo of parents waiting to get their kids at the school in my neighborhood. The kids all wear these big white overshirts over their regular clothes as their uniform. It makes them all look like little pharmacists in lab coats.
