I took this shot several years ago while strolling through Casco Viejo in search of subjects to capture with my darling P&S Canon PowerShot A720 IS. I did. This All-American kid was playing with his sister in a small park with their skateboards. Their parents were dining nearby at an open restaurant. They were visiting Panama from the States.
Bud, that’s the name I will use to identify him, was very eloquent and witty. He even spoke some Spanish. I asked their parent if I could take them a picture and they approved. I promised I would send the pictures if they gave me their e-mail address. Deal. They answered back thanking me for my gesture and that was it. Never heard from them again. End of story. But the fleeting moment was here to stay through the magic of photography.
