skating at Greek Easter

skater

first of all, my most abject and humble apologies that those of you hopeful enough to keep checking this blog have been so terribly neglected, and your patience and dedication has been dubiously rewarded with that most lame of salt jar pictures. i honestly don't know what possessed me to post that, but for my humility and posterity's sake, i will let it remain. yech.

here, now: this boy loves skateboards more than anything, and at a Greek Easter party this last Sunday he also discovered how great they are for posing. i did not manipulate him in any way, honest to goodness, i generally avoid that with my subjects. he was just taking a moment to survey his surroundings behind the instantly cool shield of a very worn skateboard. that he played with the entire time. and cried when we made him leave it behind. that, ladies and gents, is passion.

Love this one... how large is your mankin! A lovely blend of two of the loveliest people I know.
