Quick note: If you're just joining us, I've been taking my camera to seemingly desolate places - parking lots, crumbling downtown blocks and other forgotten locales - and challenging myself to find either beautiful, memorable or otherwise compelling images. This photo continues the theme...I came across this woman in a back alley during my downtown walkabout. I was using a longish lens, so I doubt she even knew I was there. While I was wandering around, there was a steady stream of folks coming and going - mostly to the nearby liquor store or bus station. I had no idea what this woman's story was, but as I took the picture, I wondered where she was coming from, where she was going, and whether she gave much thought to the tumultuous depression of her surroundings.
Your turn: Please suggest a caption for this image by leaving it in a comment. Enter as often as you'd like, as I encourage that kind of thing. As always, I'll post a new Caption This entry next Sunday. And lots of fun stuff between now and then, of course.
About last week's photo of a woman taking a walk: This photo touched a nerve in me as soon as I captured it. Awareness touched that same nerve with her caption, Spring in her step. She is a fellow Canadian, and an observer of the world around her who routinely inspires me to bring a little more introspection to my own. As worthy a read as you'll ever find in blogland...please click here to congratulate her, and don't hesitate to hang around her blog and explore. Honorable menschens go to:
