Years ago, when I was a young whipper snapper and wet behind the ears, I would walk the streets of LA with my Nikon F and document things. I will sometimes go into the Lobenberg archive and pull out one or two of my odd shots to use as reference for a painting. To the left and out of sight was a hot dog window (these were photos I snapped at the Pomona State Fair during the summer with smog to rival Bejing). This little boy was waiting for his parents who were purchasing some dogs. The little girl was from another shot. I felt that she should be coming around the corner in my painting. I also added the debris on the ground and my initials on the wall. What does it all mean? I haven't a clue. Can a few of you out there in the blogisphere clue me in?
