Do you remember your FIRST LOVE?

Here is Eriberto’s First Love story. Eriberto was at the 2000 Democratic Convention in Los Angeles taking photos.  It was hot and there was a lot of excitement in the air.

Eriberto is very keen to his surrounding, so he immediately noticed this beautiful young woman walking towards him.  

Eriberto was already trying to change the film in his camera, but by the time he finished, it was too late.  She had walked on by.  He was about to run to get in front of her to still try to take the photo, when he saw the look on this young boy looking at the young woman.  He knew right then and there; this kid was the photo.

Eriberto to this date still remembers his first love as a young boy.  Her name was Arabia.  She had long jet-black hair and was beautiful like this young woman.  Arabia was his older sister’s best friend.  

Eriberto knows he must have looked like this young boy every time Arabia came to visit his sister.   JUST 6 TEST PRINTS, different sizes, type, and prices. photo by Eriberto Oriol
