To my mind this image is a lucky joining of personal emotion with an interesting background. This young man was sitting quietly on a bench outside of a local real estate agent. His downtrodden face seemed jarringly at odds with the pictures inside. I liked that dissonance.

It’s fun to see the melding of inside and outside images that occurs when taking a picture through a window of a cluttered shop like this one.

There’s a story here. I don’t know it. Please feel free to make one up.

I’ve been laid up lately and not able to take to the streets with my trusty Ricoh GRII. Today was the first time in weeks that I went into Petaluma with the camera. I had luck with this one as the bright sun illuminated her face very well.
Nice to be back!

Saul Leiter is a photographic hero of mine. He did amazing things with color. Many works were looking through rain fogged store windows at the turbulent city streets of New York. To imply this photo is anything like his, is really not accurate. However, the placement of the coffee cup as against the overhead light and the red of the woman’s coat on the left calls to mind, mine at least, Mr. Leiter’s work. If you don’t know of him. Do yourself a favor and look him up.
