Daily wanderings with camera include searching for meaningful people scenes along Santa Monica Boulevard (U.S. Route 66) in West Hollywood. I always seek to capture a moment that has never happened before, nor will ever happen again. I never pose my subjects. Here and in most cases, they’re totally unaware that my camera is pointed at them.
The scene reminds me of artist James McNeill Whistler’s famous portrait of his mother, called Arrangement In Grey and Black No. 1. I can’t help wondering if the tragic figure in my photo is someone’s abandoned mother.
