there is some mystery left
in this project, there are a number of people that are included because they happened to be in a particular parking lot at the same time that i was passing through looking for someone to portraitize. lucky for me, and maybe for this woman too, there is a commercial area not far from my house with a coffee shop that stays open late. the night casting darkness on this series of photos was a cold one, and these shots were taken quickly for the benefit of all involved. i had no interest at this hour to be standing in the cold, and she was just trying to leave the coffee shop with her friend. this project sometimes interrupted what was expected to be the natural rhythm of life, but, i imagine that is one of the blessings of life... the mystery and the unexpected.
