CJ in his Sunday best

A regular churchgoer and resident of Newburgh, NY in one of his Sunday suits. He has thirteen children and opened the conversation with my wife Caroline by saying, "I knew a Caroline once."

He runs a barber's shop not far from where we stood.


  1. The contrast between his immaculate and brightly hued garments and the sidewalk and building in shambles is quite moving, when a person stops to think about it.

  2. Those folks in Newburgh are certainly colorful, aren't they? Liberace smock and Orangesicle trousers- Wow! Jeremy's right, nice contrasts.
