Light Reading

Uploaded: August 14, 2007


I was at the cafe when I noticed this girl and I thought it was such a graceful everyday situation. I especially loved the way the light was wrapping itself around her. She was kind enough to let me take her photo. Her name is Alexis. Photo was shot on slide film and then scanned.

I love this photograph Nancy. The lighting is incredible and providing a little of the story behind it is something I really appreciate. I wish more people would take the time to do that. It makes your gallery so much more interesting. #5463200
