Talent is Everywhere...!!!

As i was out shopping for my son's 4th bday party, I spied a woman getting her hair, braided... I knew I wanted to get a picture... Where i live there's a place called the "Alley" in downtown La, and they have various wholesale and retail shops, for hundreds of square blocks........

Now Downtown La, in the Skid Row Area, is homeless, down and out people, and just crazy people everywhere, so i a little timid and scared to approach them, but i'm glad i'm i did. They were so sweet, and and very gratefull that i asked permission before taking any pictures... La is full of tourist, and people take pictures of people all the time without asking.....

I stayed for awhile talking to these ladies, and had a very pleasant conversation. We talked about life, hair and our favorite products... And i loved how clean and crisp her parts are. She was braiding so quickly and neat i was amazed...........


  1. Talent really is everywhere! I'm starting to get less shy about talking to people about their hair and their styles. I love walking by a house not far from me where the mother is often doing her girls' hair out on the front step. I've learned a lot from that mama! Love the photos and the story behind them.

  2. I love this! You can meet so many great people when you don't judge a book by it's cover!

  3. I still can't believe how quick she was braiding, and taking the tiem to talk to a complete stranger
