Most of the time when I'm out shooting, I maintain a certain distance- close enough to feel the heat, but not so close that it burns me. It's the survival instinct, I guess. But, today I got burned. I found this boy laying in a pool of grease on the side of a busy road, gliding his arm back and forth over the sleek pavement, oblivious to the rest of the world. It seemed to soothe him somehow. I felt empty inside.
