From Argentina.

These were difficult photos to get. I originally pulled her aside because of the wonderful clash of colour she had on display. Five or six of her family members stood behind me and kept cracking jokes at her the entire time as I tried to shoot; I had to ask her to stop smiling (I don’t think I’ve ever done that before). At one point, one of them pulled out a pocket camera and began mimicking my moves. He scored points. She was giggling so much that I had to move in for the closeup shot above in part so she couldn’t see them. Afterwards when I asked where she was from, they all responded Argentino! as if Lionel Messi had just scored a winning World Cup goal. I’m not sure how this story is translating as you read it; just know it was one of my favourite street moments ever.
