This is a shot of my 12 year old son. I have been keeping my eye out for a spot to do a shot like this. I happen to come across this spot yesterday. I don't know what all the writing on the wall means, I hope it doesn't mean anything bad or offensive! LOL
Changed to b/w in photoshop and added color in photosuite

I absolutely love this picture. It's so natural and relaxed. It's totally laid back. The black and white give the picture an incredible sense of the urban scene.
