  1. Very expressive photos you have here! Particularly Ray! He’s just got some sparkle within him, gives a perfect glance for the snap & adequately hiding survival woes. Good work!

  2. this is a really cool post. I think it is really cool when people do articles like this. If you don’t mind me asking where do you get your inspiration from?

  3. Great art. I wonder, how many subjects do you find you have to ask to stop to be photographed, and how many are caught “in the moment”?

  4. I love the very first photo of Pat.
    Such raw beauty. To me it tells many tales of a hard life. I feel a true connection to this image.. what an amazing photo.. well collection of photos – to make such a connection with anybody!!!
