Weekly Kodachrome - The Mohawk

Pin It

He walked into my classroom that first day sporting a grin underneath a bristle of hair sticking straight up into the air, looking like a shrunk up version of Howard Jones around the same time Doc Emmet Brown sent Marty McFly careening through the circuits of time via a DeLorean.

Needless to say, it caught my eye.

At recess I found myself outside walking next to him.

“I like your hair,” I said with an offhanded glance.

“Really? Thanks, Mr. Z.”

“It reminds me of the mane of a unicorn.”

The boy grinned, tossed his head, and then galloped away.

A few weeks later I snapped this image—used with his mother’s permission, of course. I’m sure she’s a fan of Mr. Jones as well…after all, who isn’t?

Are mohawks back in style? Seems they reappear about every 20 years or so. Great capture. :)

I have definately noticed more and more kids wearing mohawks in the past year or two. I like the colored ones :-D

Digging the mohawk. Am I too old to pull it off?

Nice hawk....I wish I could talk one of my boys to wear one....I almost talked the youngest one into it, but then he backed out on me,lol.
