Not only that Nevada is bat country but it’s also Native American country.
My buddy and I arrived in Reno late that night and first guy we met on the street was totally hammered and shirtless, he started talking to us and it turns out he is half Serbian but born and raised in US. We clicked right away, and went around town with him whole night, I actually got a whole bunch of crazy shots along the way.
First stop was liquor store. Over there we met this guy, I can’t remember his hame but he started talking to three of us, the usual alcohol problem that natives have was obvious but what was also obvious was that he was a decent guy. So by some galactic coincidence my friend pulls out a shirt from his backpack, this shirt with painting of the #sittingbull
was made by out brother @tschiby_
and send just a few weeks earlier from Serbia. The old guy flipped out when he saw the shirt, and started saying that he was from Siting Bull’s tribe, the #Sioux
My buddy gladly gifted him the shirt and old men shed a tear, said that he can’t wait to get home and show everybody what he got. Before we went our way he allowed me to take a bunch of his portraits, which was really cool for me because natives usually don’t want their photographs taken. I like this long exposure shot best. Maybe I’ll post more pics from that night in future.
