Q: How do you favorite a photo?

A: Do you know?

They both expressed interest in having their picture taken and rapidly lit up cigarettes. When I asked their names the older guy simply replied, "He's like a son to me." I went on to take this photo and they described their identities as train jumpers, wandering the country by rail.

I was impressed by how content they seemed, or maybe slightly puzzled by their openness. As we shook hands I asked once more for their names. The older man replied, "You can call me Tony." I glanced at his Tony Lama hat and smiled.

They rely on each other it seems and it shows it this shot.

    This portrait is superb, and the rather shifty history these guys provided is funny! Rail Jumpers - I wondered if this still existed?!? This is SUCH a great entry here, and now, I need to make you a contact and view all your stuff!
