Homework, 2009

One of my neighborhood friends sits on his neighbor’s steps to do his homework. What else can you do on a beautiful autumn afternoon after school? You can’t go in yet, but the homework needs to be done. He had been in the sun, but it moved on and illuminates the hedges.

Wheels

Three young guys compare their wheels on a warm spring afternoon.

That’s a pretty spiffy go-kart—if that’s what they still call them! I remember when we made them out of anything we could attach to wheels, but this one looks “official”. This guy pedaled all over town yesterday with his buddies. I’d show off my wheels too, if I was him.
