Cat | I felt like a dead man | Documenting Los Angeles | I ran into Cat again this morning. I have seen him around a few times since I first met and photographed him, but it was always as I was driving and during work hours without a chance to stop and talk. Today he was sitting on the sidewalk smoking. "I took a picture of you a while back at the taco truck on Whittier Boulevard. The one near Collage." "Oh, I like that place." As I wait for the for the picture to load, squatting next to him, he pays me a compliment' "That's a nice phone." "I look like my brother." Says Cat when the picture comes up. "I remember that night, I felt like a dead man" "I'm sorry to hear that." "No, it's a good thing, dead men don't have anything to worry about." Cat says with a smile. "Can I take your picture again? I ask "Sure", the peace sign comes out. I snap a few. "How about one of you smoking - for the kids?" "That's how I cure cancer." #wearegrryo #losangels #la #documentary #vsco #humanitarian #lovedbygod #godlovesme #whittier #socalmoments Streetphotography Wearegrryo

The (Re)Connection | A father seemed to be talking to his daughter for the first time in a long time. It reminded me, while I can, connect daily with the ones I love and when I can't connect daily, connect often so that I will never have to REconnect.
