The Thinker by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

Walking in a small town in Florida I saw this lady walking down the bridge with her head down, made me think that sometimes we all wanna escape and take a long walk and just reflect about life. I relate a lot on that scene, we never know how much situation all humans have. I took the photo while walking in a cold windy day in Clear Water ,Florida.

Jose was born in the small tropical Island of Puerto Rico. Since a child he always had dreams, dreams to become a someone and travel the world. Then when he came to the USA, he confronted hard situations where streets, alcohol, and drugs was always there. However, after many years, one day he woke up and said “this is not for me”, so that’s when he went and completed rehabilitation. He thinks it is life that makes him to love photography, He wishes he had a camera in those crazy days to show the world how people are destroying their lives today. He wants to thank Light and Composition and its staff for letting him follow his dreams and achieve his goals and travel the world to show everyone that its possible even if you are 37 years old, is never to late for anything.
