The guy who showed me around. I just told him to show me whatever he wanted to, and he was happy to oblige. It wasn’t long after we were in the area that he let loose, knocking down a small shed with glee. This destructive streak is not apparent when you first meet him. He’s actually a very shy and overly-polite guy. But here, he can let loose. He and his friends have claimed this area that no one else really cares about. He’s a legendary whirlwind of destruction and even an object of speculation and myth. As I said in the beginning, he’s the person I would have wondered about had I wandered in here alone. In fact, he’s actually part of the reason I didn’t head in there alone. I’ve heard about the gangs of teens who go there to destroy. Doesn’t sound like people you’d want to run across. Turns out I knew one of them already.
In this shot, he’d stopped as we walked through the house to listen for sounds. He was constantly on the alert for any dangers— either authorities or strangers.
