The 1940s was a romantic era.  This girl standing along a walkway parallel to the neighborhood street has a quality of patience, as though frozen in time. I wanted to preserve the feeling one gets from the black and white photography, while introducing just a trace of color.  I wanted the mystery, the romance, this disjuncture between our era and that time, and between her patient waiting and the long perspective behind her that trails off into infinity.

  1. thank you for sharing your reaction — I’m never sure what effect the color has with this particular image — it was an experiment of sorts — I appreciate your feedback, Rosie!
