Russell, originally uploaded by john m flores.

Russell is a Platinum Minds scholar. Injured his leg running track. Taking a break. Probably thinking about his prom, which was the next day.

Platinum Minds helps bright students from inner cities and other tough environments stay focused on education and get exposed to opportunities in the broader world. Good group, good kids, good cause.

I volunteered to shoot their event - smiling faces, people lining up for a shot and all. In the midst of it all I saw Russell sitting there, resting his fatigued good leg. Ever the photojournalist, I snuck this shot in. I like the framing, particularly the hazy person on the right. The bw processing also looks funky, kind of like early television.
