These Thornton Park schoolboys totally made my morning

Posted By on Thu, Feb 20, 2014 at 1:12 PM

I was taking photos in Thornton Park this morning to print with my monthly music column Feedback, when I was suddenly swarmed by some boy hoodlums. I kid, of course, but what actually happened is much more endearing than that.

As I was standing in the Thornton Park fountain, trying to get some reeeeal artsy shots for ya’ll, these guys circled me, begging me to take their picture instead. I pretended not to notice them, but then quickly snapped a shot, trying to catch them by surprise, but they were at the ready with their poses.

Right when the camera clicked, they laughed and ran to school, excitedly squealing to each other that this picture was gonna be on the Internet.

I just couldn’t disappoint them. These boys made my morning.
