This photograph was taken on the road, somewhere near the coast of Ecuador. I was traveling with a group of friends and needed to stop at the small pharmacy nearby. As soon as we pulled off the side of the road, I hopped out the van for less than a minute before taking the shot. As soon as my feet hit the street I heard a women yell, “No hay fotografías!” Just then, a formidable looking man sporting a large cowboy hat walked by. I took his photo and climbed back into the van.
