I traversed Park Ave. In Winter park, FL, several times. Tish was always sitting on the sidewalk in exactly the same place. There was a shoe shine booth close by, but I could not detect a relationship. Finally, I couldn't control myself, and introduced myself. She was shy and quiet, but was willing to be photographed.
Tish was born in Orlando, but graduated from high school in martin County, on the Florida Atlantic coast. She is looking for work, but apparently wasn't looking too hard that day. Her goal is to work in security as a guard. But this requires a Security License which requires a course and exam. I asked how long the course was. The answer, “Three days.” She is waiting for a chance to take it.
