cincinnati - summer 2017

in-no-cence: is the quality of having no experience or knowledge of the more complex or unpleasant aspects of life.

i took this image in cincinnati this summer and couldn't help but wonder where this little girl was going or where she was coming from. this was in the over the rhine area of cincinnati which is in a state of transition between low income and gentrification so it's a little rough right now.

she was all alone, riding her bike without a care in the world. me on the other hand? I worried about her, wanted to make sure she was ok and assure that she made it to her destination without incident. i wondered where she would go in life, what opportunities would come her way, "or elude her?"
