The owners of the hands in this image did not want to be photographed.
So the idea that I had in mind prior to composing the final image went out the window.
I was very frustrated.
I mean, how often do you see a group of black men playing chess outside a grocery store??
You don’t see that very often.
But you would have thought that I was the police walking up on them.
Like I said, I was very frustrated, but I guess you have to take what you can get.
