Why Real? I asked.
“I just like Ronaldo a lot.”
Not the answer I was looking for. Matthew was not eager to be photographed and I was not eager to photograph yet another Galacticos fan. But facing my first rejection, and not ready for it, I worked a bit harder to convince him to participate. With his training jacket over the jersey Matthew reminded me that colder weather is coming and that I might have to start undressing people on the street to find out if they wear a jersey or not.
