The Boy Next Door


My inspiration was the movie, Meet Me in St. Louis, Judy Garland sings about her neighbor. This is my neighbors. She's thinking of him, and of course he's thinking of basketball.

I think he's just playing it cool...he's thinking of her too. Their both very cute kids, I love the loose feeling of them. Great portraits.

This is lovely - but I reckon he is thinking of her just a little - his heads turned her way...
