Quiet Pockets of Time

At One With Herself
Photos of Citizen Cyclists in motion, propelling their incredibly efficient machines through the cityscape, are brilliant and it's a pleasure to photograph them. People waiting at red lights, however, also possess a strong aesthetic quality. Quiet pockets of time that punctuate the momentum of motion through the city. Pause for thought and reflection. Fragments of time during which one has time to regard one's urban surroundings and the fellow citizens that inhabit it.

What I love is the pictorial angles between her and the statue behind her - the respective turn of their faces, their torsos, the contraposition of shoulders.
