where is Rudolpho?
his crooked old hands are not
here holding the news.

a pop of colour wordpress photo course.
This red bench was the ‘pop of colour’ I had been seeking to finish the ‘developing your eye’ wordpress course.

There is usually an old street vendor sitting here reading the newspaper while he sells sweets, fans or small plastic toys. At night he sleeps between pieces of cardboard in an alley behind an international hotel. He gets wet when it rains.

I own a lot of fans.
