I really like this picture, and I just got around to reading your Street Photography piece, so I'm just wondering, have your thoughts on digital and color changed, or was this one of those very rare instances where color worked? (I apologize if you've already gone over this subject numerous times.)

I don't even know what to say. Reminds me an awful lot of Las Vegas, where I spent a majority of the time staring around at all the hotels and attractions on the Strip, looking out the window of my hotel room at the hotel across the street, trying to fill my eyes with all the colors of the hotels' faces and the lights cars hissing their way down the Strip like snakes. I can only imagine what's flowing through her eyes and neurons in that moment.

A moment forever caught in time. Study the foto as if looking for something hardly noticed. Thanks CW. This is the beauty of life.

Saying it wasn't the most beautiful picture I've ever seen wouldn't entirely be a lie, but it'd be pretty damn close.

If i tried to do sumthin like this, I'm sure there would be like 38 people lookin at the camera or scurrying away like they don't want to be in the shot. (that's for family portraits idiots)

The true beauty to capture of a person is Natural beauty, when no one thinks you're taking pictures.

Gonna quote this guy here, which is brilliant.
"There is a real magic to photography that comes when the artist is able to “disappear” his camera and equipment, and even his own presence..."
Love it. Status change...
