SIN IS STILL IN THE HOUSE.
AND TONIGHT'S GUEST IS... DOM.
I bumped into Dominic at MK shopping centre about two weeks ago when I was doing some street shots (Do have a look at 'The Hoodies' I posted yesterday) and he kind-heartedly accepted my request to take a couple of shots. The result is this photo titled 'I'm so fly' - why did I choose this title? Well, he does seem to have a smug look about him, don't you think? One which says, I am cool and I know it.
Dominic is a quiet, laid-back guy has a lot of charisma and cool behind the silent nonchalance. He's got great manners as well as a big smile which would light up anyone's day. And how do I know this wonderful young man? He used to be a student of mine.
This is one of those moments where I thank the Lord for sending me in the direction that I chose to take - being a teacher, with all its trials and tribulations, working with young people who are not afraid to challenge ideas, question opinions and refuse taking things at face value. Young people who do not take an inch until you take miles, but once they have done so, will let you into their wonderful, whacky world. Young people who smile and mean it, who would not stoop to show false flattery and fake friendship. Young people who make you proud when you see them weeks, months, years later.
