A Street Happening!
I was walking down Cuesta de San Jose, a street near my home, thinking about what I was going to do when I got near the jardin.
Then, I noticed something happening at the corner. Two little ones being photographed by their mom. They had just left the kindergarten. It is extremely unusual to see little ones dressed up in Halloween costumes here. So I asked the mom if I could photograph the girls. She said, "Si".
So photograph them I did. Then the most delightful spontaneous thing began to happen. I couldn't have planned it to happen that way if I had wanted to. First another child stepped in and I photographed the three. Then another and another. By now the moms and I were laughing - all of us in the middle of the street.
These are the things that happen without expectation that make life here such a delightfully whimsical event. A true "street happening".
