I want to thank all who have commented on my postings.  Fortunately for my
ego I'm not trying to sell any images but unfortunately for my skill level
there is little feedback either from an editor or peers who were working at
the same time/place with a different outlook.

The Cecelia images are a prime example of what happens when you are doing
"street photography".  You usually only get a few frames of any one thing as
most people will let you take some but at some point they need to go about
whatever it is they were doing before you came into their life.  In this
case it didn't quite work.  I couldn't sell you on I was trying to put the
emphasis on the boy and not the barber could I?

As to Abe,  I am trying to work out a series showing the average worker in
the US and how they fit in to the rest of us.  For Abe, I was struck that
here was this Hispanic gentleman trying to do the job while those of us with
shopping carts were whizzing around him.  Hence the pole dividing him from
the rest of the image and also why the background was brought up to make Abe
and island of dark in the higher key surroundings.  This too didn't work.
Hmmm, back to the drawing board.
