Sun and Shadow
Rising action: Ricardo posing naked is a rising action because it is building up to the part when the camera man leaves which is the climax. This thing that Ricardo does is what really causes the photographer to give up. The photographer realizes he can't take pictures in a place where there is a naked man!
Climax: The camera crew and models accept defeat and leave the neighborhood. This is the climax because it is what the whole story is building up to be. Throughout the whole story Ricardo is fighting for the man to leave his neighborhood, and then he finally gets his way at the climax.
Falling action: When the people who gathered because of the conflict clap for Ricardo. This is a falling action because it happens shortly after the climax. This is when Ricardo starts to return to his normal life and starts to walk back to his humble home.
Resolution: Ricardo walks back into his own property. Ricardo returns to his simple life and the whole idea of the photographers and models coming to his neighborhood is forgotten and dropped.
Every place is someones home and deserves respect
Photographer: It is quite clear that the photographer an Riccardo have something in common: Persistency. Although Riccardo's persistency got him his way, the photographer still had a great deal of it. Again, this persistency was shown through indirect characterization. I can tell the photographer is persistent because like Riccardo, he doesn't give up until the very end. He keeps pushing and pushing to take pictures until Riccardo won't stop pulling his pants down. The photographer also seems very arrogant. He comes into a neighborhood that consists of a lot of low income housing and treats it like all it is is a backdrop. I think this sense of arrogance is what really sets Riccardo off.
This is how I picture the front of Riccardo's house to look like. There is chipped paint, cracks in the walls, and the cobblestone is very worn down like it is in Riccardo's neighborhood.
This is how I picture Riccardo to look. A middle-aged Mexican man.
