I was walking in a new neighborhood in Jinotega, that I had not been before. The lighting was good during a late afternoon. Rain was threatening. A rather large dog appeared on my left across the street.

The dog appeared quite suddenly, poking its head through a narrow opening in the metal door. There was a lot of vertical lines in the scene. Therefore I created a vertical composition.

The Jinotega Series1- Repairman

I was strolling the streets of Jinotega, Nicaragua looking for photo subjects. Just ahead of me was a gentleman repairing electrical motors. I asked if I may photograph him. With a smile I was giving permission. The result was this beautiful photo capturing him in action.

Tough Love

We met

At the cross road

Of our lives

Two lonely people

We had our good days

We had our bad days

But our love endured

But it was tough love

Tough love

Tough love

We were like a storm

Forever blowing in

But we always knew

There was always a calm

We always knew

There would be a calm

Before the storm

There was a passion

But we knew long ago

That we would know

That it would be

Tough love

Tough love

Tough love

We cried

We lied

We loved

Tough love

Tough love

Tough love

We met

At the cross road

Of our lives

Two lonely people

We had our good days

We had our bad days

But our love endured

But it was tough love

Tough love

Tough love

As I was photographing the football action, my neighbor was watching the boys behind her barred door.

The goalie has just blocked the shot. He is leaning back from the impact of the ball. Great action.

The Streets Of Jinotaga-Football

Every evening before dark, a group of young men play football in front of my house. They are nice lads. Friendly. I grabbed my camera and headed outdoors. One will stand in front of a wall. He is the goalie. Across the street the ball is set up for the shot. The objective is to put the ball pass the goalie and hit the wall. If the goalie stops the shot he gets another chance at stopping the ball. If not the lad that scores becomes the goalie.

Thus I was able to capture some action shots that evening.
