A week ago I was in a city 4 hours from where I am living in Guatemala. I came across a scene that I hadn't seen specifically as of yet. It was a man sitting on the street outside a home, resoling and repairing shoes of the person inside. all his tools, glues and pieces of leather were scattered around him.

Unfortunately I was not in a position to take his photo at that time - even though I desperately wanted to. I wasn't sure I would come across that opportunity again.

Well I did. This morning, while walking around a slightly more affluent area at the other end of the city from where I live - there sat a man on the street with his tools, pieces of leathers leaned up against the wall behind hime - - - fixing several pairs of shoes that had been brought out to him.

I didn't let this opportunity pass me by. I got his name, but it was very unusual and I didn't write it down. Unfortunately he didn't have email or a Facebook account, so I wasn't able to find a means where I can deliver copies of the images to. Hopefully I come across him again in the future.
