i took this photo at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC on a very cold winter day. there was a really pretty fountain and i was practicing capturing the falling water in different ways using the settings on my new camera. it wasn't until i got home and photoshopped this one that i saw the smiling homeless woman who had been sitting on the other side of the fountain. i had seen her come in from the cold earlier in the day but didn't notice that she sat, quietly reading, while i fiddled with my new toy. there isn't anything particularly special about this photo...but, through it, this woman speaks to and humbles me.
