Connecticut's primary elections are today. I am a Florida resident, so I don't vote here. A Democratic candidate for governor served seven years in prison on corruption charges when he was Bridgeport's mayor; he was elected again when he got out. The party-nominated Republican candidate says he is going to repeal the income tax, which provides half of the state's revenues.
At first I walked past Shannon. But, she looked so down and out, I went back and gave her some money and told her to get something to eat. Shannon lives under a nearby bridge.
Raymond was happy to have someone to talk to. He didn't smile for his portrait because he is missing several teeth and he is self-conscious. Raymond proudly told me he shaves once a month.
This wasn't the day.
Tori works at the downtown Hartford Y, in the Head Start program.
Andy is a mechanic. When I showed him this photo, he said, "I look like a terrorist."
Desire's red braids caught my eye. She smiled for the first two photos, but I didn't like them.
I asked her to wipe all expressions and go blank. I liked this one better. Desire is a
nursing student in Hartford. She works at a production company in New Britain.
