Eshauna approached me as I was on a bike ride last night and asked if I had money to spare. I didn't, but I told her I had a pop-tart if she was interested. "No, I'm a dope fiend," she murmured. I asked if she could repeat herself.

"No, I'm a dope fiend."

I then asked if she was interested in having her photograph taken, and she nodded yes. She was so natural in front of the lens, as you can tell from the photos. She started to tear up as I photographed her, and while I didn't understand why that was, I appreciated the mystery of it. Who knows what she was thinking, but I'd like to imagine that it made her feel beautiful, because she was.
