this is what I really spent my time doing when I went to the Colonial Zone.
the first photograph is of Juanita, 90 years old. She made me sit on her stoop and chat with her for nearly thirty minutes before she would let me photograph her. I somehow managed to keep up a conversation in Spanish about our families and lives. She was absolutely fascinating and beautiful. then the two girls came by, wanting their photo taken and so of course I did. they then talked to me for a while as we walked around the streets, taking me on a tour of their little area.
