For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. I Corinthians 13: 12

I shot this candid through the windshield of our car quickly on the passenger's side...My eye caught the bright red shirt on the young fellow that says "I'm a Pepper." He doesn't have a pop can of Dr. Pepper in his hand but it looks like 7-up. I caught this moment before the signals turned for the couple to cross the street.

I did not realize until later that my camera took in the focal range even further down the street on the store sign that says "Tattoo Shop Coming soon" with the interested young boy peeping through the window glass maybe dreaming ahead to be the first customer:)

Street shots sometimes bring surprises after we look at the whole picture and not just part of the scene.
