Q: How do you favorite a photo?

A: Do you know?

Henri Cartier-Bresson has been a big influence early in my photography. I loved the simple everyday moments he has captured that has otherwise remained unseen and unappreciated. This shot was taken on a pedestrian lane where people were rushing to cross the street while the cars were on the red. It immediately reminded me of HCB's "Behind the Gare St. Lazare" photograph... capturing an unknown person mid air seemingly leaping off to nowhere.

    ...amidst nervous laughter, she considered the matter. she was not the kind of woman who inspired devotion. tears welled in her eyes. she said goodbye, and darted off into the night.
