The summer of rain #12

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 23 August 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Do you like his grin?
Yep, you can still have fun in the rain.
Another shot of another "Badlander" in the Bents Park, South Shields.
There's a splash of a raindrop on his shoulder which caught my eye more than his gold tooth :-)

a very nice shot... I see the splash, you showed me the gold teeth which we don't have here never... a saw his missing tooth which we see so often in United States, probably too expansive... that is why people make the trip to Mexico when then can so cheap cost campare... He has a nice smile and still have fun...
