Walking In Jinotega

Walking around the street corner, this fella jumped up and asked if I would take his photo. Sure I told him. He then sat back down in doorway. I photo graphed him. Showed him the photo. He looked, smiled and sat back down in doorway. I shook hands and moved on.

Strolling along the street I noticed an older lady sitting on a step. It was late evening. Thus she was relaxing after a day of labor. With her permission I captured her image

Bananas For Sale

Everyday you will find this gentleman push his cart up the street in Jinotega and set up in the same location. His source of income is selling bananas.

Whenever he is hungry he eats a banana or two.

I spoke to him about taken his photo. He was okay with that.

ON Duty

Jinotaga_0495

 

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 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.

Let The Day Be Ours

I know you don’t

Love me

Stay awhile

Enjoy the day

We are just

Two lonely people

Always searching

For that one love

Come

Take my hand

Why don’t you stay

We can enjoy the day

Let this day be ours

We were lovers

So long ago

But got lost in time

So why don’t you stay…

Yesterday, yesterday…

Was so long ago

Tomorrow too far away

Let the day be ours

We could love again

Forget about yesterday

Just enjoy the day

Then maybe tomorrow

Why don’t you

Come home to stay

We will find a way

To share our love

I know you don’t

Love me

Stay awhile

Enjoy the day

Come

Take my hand

Why don’t you stay

We can enjoy the day

Let this day be ours

We are just

Two lonely people

Always searching

For that one love

Your Picture

Your Picture

I put your picture

Beside my bed

Your sunny smile

Your sparkling eyes

I still can’t get you

Out of my mind

Our love ran deep

For one another

You were just 21

I was only 24

When we sealed our love

With a vow of marriage

We had two beautiful children

The grandchildren came

Along with our golden years

To bring joy into our lives

They always ask me about you

Upon seeing your picture

I tell them that you are in heaven

That she sends her love

When my days are blue

I just look at your picture

With that sunny smile

And sparkling eyes

I put your picture

Beside my bed

Your sunny smile

Your sparkling eyes
