Was attending the “Texas Country Reporter” festival in Waxahachie Texas, people watching as it was, and saw this young man in uniform.

Asked his obliging parents if I could take his picture, they agreed, and quickly looked around for a backdrop, well you see what I saw.

Can’t children be children as long as they wanna be? Wish I hadn’t rushed away from innocence, in the scope of time, adult lasts a lot longer than being a child

FEATURED IN THE GROUP:

Beige Is Death – April 15th, 2011

I am proud of my Native American Heritage and am making it a goal to return to a lot of the old ways.

Photography is my friend and outlet, making a statement concerning injustice and the need for equality amongst every soul that walks this Earth is my passion.

I create art to be controversial, and make you think.

The truth has never damaged the righteous cause

    I agree whole-heartedly with your words. Yet yor portrait meets him where he is – the mark of a willingness to listen rather than proceed.

  • It was an odd set of circumstances and could have gone either way, yet his father seemed to be the death pusher, thank you for your thought provoking comment

    Shouldn’t that be “Do Not Leave”?
