Colorless December ... Telling a Story

Black and white is better than full color for telling stories in one frame, or one frame and a caption--most of the time.

This woman was waiting outside a jewelry store downtown. I noticed her as I drove by, standing, looking, arms crossed, clearly waiting. I went around the block and she was still there, pacing, so I grabbed a few frames.

I don't know that the jewelry store had anything to do with her waiting, or that even indeed she was waiting, but the implication that she was waiting outside the jewelry store, in June...well, I found it interesting.

I really like the reflections, which were enhanced in black and white, and the contrast of the blonde woman almost out of the frame like the subject is in the reflection on the right.

I hope things worked out for her.

I wonder if she'll get in touch with you.
