In my series "Street Shoting" this is my most important image. Shot with a Kodak Retina Reflex, Tri-X film, 400 asa. We were at the funeral of Dr. King, on the grounds of Moorehouse College. Julian Bond was speaking. I had time to travel the crowd. That was forty five years ago. I would like to find these kids all grown up and see how they faired...mjb

In the Fifty Years with the Camera photo essay.

    What a moment you saw & captured with the lens, Michael. Love how you rendered the photo. One of those few pictures it takes us a lifetime to discover. And they're always all there, in the street, we just don't see them everyday...
