Carlos: Not Proud, Not Ashamed

Carlos on deck

This is the deck of my house. That is me. That's the little plant I have for decoration on my desk. I like seeing myself there on my deck. I don't feel proud or ashamed or anything.

Do you consider Seattle your home?

Yes, I know I come from El Salvador, but this is my home. I have been here for many years.


Éste es el patio de mi casa. Ése soy yo. Ésa es una plantita que tengo para decoración en mi patio. Me gusta verme allí en mi patio. No me siento orgulloso ni avergonzado ni nada.

Carlos: Taking the Bus

blurry photo of bus interior

This is a Cuban guy who takes the bus and goes downtown. He works on the ships. And so, I see him in the street a lot….
So, why did you want to take a picture of him?
Well, because he is Latino as well, and also because we speak Spanish. These are people that I know, and they are my friends. I have many friends around the city.

Carlos: I Study Things That I Like

I have a brother who is here. I sometimes see him but he has mental health problems. So he sometimes goes away and disappears. He worked a lot when he was younger. So he has social security.  

Do you have any family back in El Salvador?

Yes I have some. Sometimes we talk on the phone. I have a niece in El Salvador.  

Do you use a computer to communicate with them?

Carlos: Friends Around the City

This is a Cuban guy who takes a bus and goes downtown. He works in the ships. And so, I see him in the street a lot….

So, why did you want to take a picture of him?

Well, because he is Latin as well. And one, because we speak Spanish.  There are people that I know, they are my friends. I have many friends around the city.  

It looks like you are not alone a lot. You have many friends.
