1001 Black Men #937


Buena Vista Ave., Alameda, California.

I saw the man in this portrait as I was waiting at one of the few stop lights on Buena Vista Ave.  He was walking with a couple of friends from a high school at the other end of this very long street, and there was something about the contrast between the fullness of the hair on this guys head and the sparseness of the hair on his face that reminded me of my own high school friends. I loved the way his wonderfully curly head of hair seemed to suggestion both awareness of and indulgence in the pleasure of embracing exactly who you are.
