Hearing Aid

Ebaristo, my little Trinidad shoeshine friend recently complained that his hearing aid was no longer effective. I researched all the models and brought him the most powerful one I could find that was similar to what he had.

He was so appreciative that he quit for the day and invited me back to his home. I photographed him with his granddaughter and we drank coffee.

  1. Mark,
    Your kindness speaks volumes about your character. It also helps portray Americans, and photographers in a wonderfully humanitarian and caring way. Well done. Great images and great story.

  2. Hearing is so apart of day to day living, may I not take it for granted. Ebaristo’s new hearing aid will echoe back to YOU three fold, the joys of a good cup of coffee and company, way to go.
