Ralphie, aka Killer.

We spend a lot of time talking with locals in Eastpoint, Florida when we photograph, it is probably the most important component of the charm of the area. We meet some of the greatest folks and enjoy the stories they tell. It is a very tight knit community and we feel very honored that they will open up with us as they do. We met one man yesterday who was standing outside his truck and up in the driver’s seat pops this great face. He tells us that this is Killer, or Ralphie as most folks call him. I decided to do my image at 16mm to show how Ralphie was the boss of the truck. After we talked a few minutes and visited with them, the owner jumped in the truck with Ralphie taking his place on his lap and they drove off. Raphie maintained his look of dominance the entire time. Great folks in Eastpoint, Florida.
