Chris (#570) 04-18-14

I stood in a location that is usually unsuitable for portrait photography. But on this morning, the overcast sky made the light acceptable. As Chris walked toward me, his loosey-goosey gait, and amused look caught my eye and made a portrait attempt necessary.

His initial response was interest, tempered by shy caution. As I looked into his eyes, he seemed younger than I had first thought. He attends Sarasota Military Academy, not one of the larger schools in the area. I know a man whose daughter goes there and Chris knew her.

Chris was quite proud of his shirt. The logo, “Parents For Sale – Buy One, Get One Free”, could be interpreted as a serious insult. But Chris' face suggests to me that it is all in good humor.
