Originally, I intended this photo to be of the interior of the cafe, which had high ceilings with interesting light fixtures and lots of people underneath them. But when I played with different crops of this shot, this one caught my eye.
I didn’t even see this woman in my photo when I took it. She was sitting across from a male companion, but they were both just staring into space. It’s a pretty tight crop, so it looks grainy, but I found the photo was much more interesting when I saw her. How depressed she looks! So silent. What could she be thinking?
I’m a pretty upbeat person, so to see someone so down made me feel sad.
