I took photos of the boy who was playing guitar on the bridge. He came here from the town called Potosi. He played guitar very well with only one string. I tipped him generously because I spent much time for shooting the film. Then he said “Gracias!!!”(Spanish “Thank you”) and left there.
After lunch, I found him in front of the symbolic church in the town again. He showed me some new strings with nice smile. It seemed like he has bought the strings by the money that I handed over.
He wore a typical Potosi vest and the color was so impressive. I asked him to become a model for the sneakers. It’s just as I thought. The vest and the Mexico66 were nice color matching.
After shooting. I presented the Mexico66 to him as my appreciation. I cannot forget his smile. The old sneakers were too small to wear for him.
