You can really catch urban scenes to the perfection !
And the blue background gives it an eerie atmosphere ! I love it !

Tough guys willing (happy?) to meet you halfway . . . ? Fantastic juxtaposition of their B&W against powder blue, not to mention hooks on the wall to our left. A superb array of component parts, Kevin.

It takes thought and planning to put together that look and they're proud of it. I saw a couple of kids in Pasadena the other day dressed much the same way. Somehow I think the Pasadena kids probably just spent their allowance on what looked cool.

This is such eye candy. Absolutely EVERYTHING is right. I hope you do more of these portraits. Love them.

Nice one!

I have to laugh because they have patches of several bands that I listened to when I was their age, almost 30 years ago.
The Grerms,Vice Squad,DRI,Misfits,etc. Gotta love old fashioned kids. :)
