{ handkerchief }

I’m always returning to this photo, this woman with her handkerchief that I took a couple of years ago, adjusting its contrast and sharpness and just admiring the subject matter. I adore the expression on her face. I find it to tough to capture people, though. It’s like I want to know about them, but I feel like I’m intruding in their privacy (which I am by snapping away). The goal is saving the moment in my camera (no easy task), in hopes their thoughts and feelings leak back out and translate on photo paper and to be frozen in time.
