When my friend Bill and I were in coming back from Martha’s Vineyard in August of 2004, I took a shot of some kids at the bow of the ferry at sunset.
There seems to be a story in this photo; the boy on the right looking at the girl. What’s he thinking? You can tell he likes her, but does she like him? The girl on the left—the big sister? What is going through her mind?
I am almost embarrassed to admit how many times I have referred to this photo and wondered what stories are behind this snapshot.
This photo reminds me so much of my childhood; my gang of friends on Balboa Island and the dynamics of our relationships together.
