You'll shoot your eye out, kid

Smithsonian magazine's Indelible Images feature always has a nifty photograph to discuss. This month, it's like a blast from my past... a towheaded kid in plaid pants on a Big Wheel in a housing tract in the Bay Area in the early 70's. I'd like to think my face looked less murderous than this kid's, but that's really what makes this photo. It's like the ghost of the Wild West. Beautiful.
