This image reminds me why I love photography. The stories, the mystery, the drama one can create in a single moment with tight framing. Shot with slide film years ago, this scene still challenges me. It survives as a single artifact in my portfolio. I wish I had taken more captures of this, but in the days of film I always shot very carefully. Maybe on that day I felt I had captured the only meaning and composition this scene could give...
