Jay & Eric

I was driving up Central Avenue when I saw these two lying on the curb and reading to each other at the bus stop. It was such an incredible moment, such a powerful image, that I immediately pulled over, found a parking spot, and started walking toward them. As I approached, they both looked up, smiled, and said hello. I responded with my own hello and then casually asked if I could take their picture. They looked at each other for permission and both responded, “Sure!” I proceeded to sit down on the sidewalk as they turned slightly toward me and posed. Normally, I don’t go for the posed shot, but this time it seemed perfect. I made a few exposures and chatted with them briefly. Soon, the bus was pulling up, and it was time to move on. I quickly asked them their names, told them mine, and we simply waved goodbye.
