    Here is a portrait that I took yesterday afternoon on my way home. Some boys were on the street hamming it up and I pulled out my camera to grab shots of them.

    Just before leaving, I had them gather together - - - and then I extended my camera overhead, for this shot. I just love the lighting that I can get on the streets of Central America - without any controls or reflectors (look at the "softbox style" highlights in the eyes). As well, I am addicted to Swivel Screens on the backs of my cameras, so that I can - as in this case - raise my camera high and frame accurately - - - or lower it and shoot from the waist.
