There’s a particular stairway in the old section of Petaluma, CA that’s quite narrow. I have found that by standing right at the top of it, I’m often able to take some pretty good candid portraits of people climbing it. The dark smudges on the wall behind them as they crest the landing makes a rather good background.
This lady with the furrowed brow and striking very long blond hair was a lucky shot I got about an hour ago today. I say “lucky” because she was moving very fast and there was only one quick chance to take her picture.
