This picture was taken at the south eastern area of Prospect Park. Just outside the park is the ghetto. It looks like some of the ghetto residents have wandered into the park and are gathered together in some sort of huddle.
Normally, I feel that there’s no artistry in taking pictures with a telephoto lens, but I didn’t think it would be a good idea for a nerdy white guy like myself to walk up to these guys in order to get a more intimate photo.
I must point out that this is not the typical crowd that hangs out in Prospect Park. I estimate that only 15% of the people you see in Prospect Park are black, and of the 15%, one third are Oreos and another third are immigrant blacks from the Caribbean and Africa.
