Photographer's Note

While Valparaiso is a beautiful city with stunning views, steep hills and bright colorful homes and decorations, it is also a city of evident poverty. Many crumbled facades line major streets, side by side with renovated pastel homes and businesses; graffiti, like this, marks much of the city.

I came across this boy, kneeling curbside along a faded, chipping wall marked with graffiti, quite near the site of my previous photo, and within the boundaries of Valparaiso's most upscale, touristy area. I had only a couple of seconds to take the shot as traffic rolled by, frequently blocking my view.
