An Accident in the Neighborhood

This is another set of photos from the first roll I processed myself.

I was sitting at a coffee shop, my friends and I were telling stories when all of a sudden, a “THUMP.” The sound was startling, we all looked over. I stood up and saw a silver car with a dent in the hood. The driver's face was pale with disbelief and expressed such shock. Her eyes were wide with terror. I could only imagine what she was thinking, “did I just hit someone?!” She did.

I loaded my Mamiya RB67, took out my light meter and began taking pictures.


Shortly after the accident, the police, fire department, and an ambulance arrived. The kid laid there with his eyes closed, unconscious. They were trying to get his attention.


Then in a moment, his eyes opened... Sudden consciousness came upon him. “Do you know where you are? Do you know what happened? You were hit by a car...”

Less than twenty minutes before these photos were taken, this boy was darting through the alley way. A car was slowly passing though the street, safely, approaching the stoplight. The boy darted through the alley way and was hit by the car. He bounced off the hood like a ham on a tin roof.

Eventually he was okay.
