Who do Voodoo? We do voodoo

Man from Venice Beach Copyright 2009 Bryan Moore

I got to know the people of venice beach pretty well  while staying there  a few years back.  This man pictured  always stood out as a bright spot of color on the beach side path.  He agree for me to take his picture but said he wouldn’t do  one of him looking at the camrea.    It has often been  said that photographs steal a part of the subjects soul.  This idea comes from the practice of Voodoo  in that some one can cast spells or harm on a likeness of you.  Its not that that your stealing there soul but that they think you mean them harm  through there likeness.

    That face – I can’t imagine what he’s seen.
