Demolition Boy

When I saw the house being torn down, I knew the card I wanted to make.  All I needed was a small stocky kid with a great smile.  Little did I know that he lived 4 doors down.  I had never met him until a week before we shot this image.  I was saddened by the loss of some old houses here in Five Points.  In their place will be high dollar multi-family condos.  That's Ok.  Nothing stays the same and nothing lasts forever.  If someone is going to risk replacing what were old and dilapidated buildings with fancy condos, more power to them.  I hope it succeeds.  I'm sure it will for somebody.  In the meantime, I have another greeting card to add to the collection.
