A Walk Down Pratt Street


Lawrence describes himself as a victim's advocate and he says he is a structural engineer.
He has repeatedly sued the City, the State, real estate developers and construction companies for
what he calls flaws and fraud in construction of Connecticut buildings.


Agnes moved here from Ghana eighteen years ago.  She is a certified nurse's aide.


Rishi used to be a banker.  He and his cousin opened a liquor store on Pratt Street about a month ago.


And, Stewart is an optician.  He is also an amateur photographer.  We had a good time discussing technique, subjects, and other photo-geeky stuff.  Stewart often works with photographers
to match their models to eyewear that suits their look and wardrobe.

All excellent portraits and interesting characters Jack but ... Oh my, the shot of Lawrence is brilliant, from your description you have captured his personality perfectly.

A nice selection of portraits!

What an interesting group! I'd say Lawrence may have a problem, though. And I guess there's more money in liquor than banking. As they say, banking is fine but liquor is quicker!

I bet Lawrence is forever busy! For sure he would be if he lived in Ontario. :)
