Stop In the Name of Love







Seeing this street action brought me right back to the days in Philadelphia and Churchville as a kid. Following my older sisters around after dark, listening to the Supremes on a transistor radio, playing kick ball in the street.
These kids were kind enough to let me photograph them. Such innocent fun. You never find friends like the ones you hung out with as a kid.
