City life 2

I work on my thesis in the downtown library between interviewing immigrant parents about raising their children in San Francisco. I hear curses as I walk to the first interview, coming from a young girl in a suit wearing a bright red blouse that’s now getting soaked from the pelting rain. She throws the offending umbrella to the curb in frustration and starts to run. I hold onto my own umbrella with two hands, bracing myself against the wind.

    Love this too. A wonderful image. I am so glad that you commented on my blog so I came to check you out! I am so lucky to have yet another person to learn from and be in awe of… I keep forgetting to tell you thank you for that link to the future professor’s email list. I have signed up and I love it! I don’t read everything, but the ones I have read are wonderful. You just make me a better person! Thank you.

    Cherry, it’s great catching up with you. I love the second photo of the rainbow, mainly I think b/c of the houses below it. Also loved your words with the marsh photos. But what super drew me in were these two black and white shots–their starkness, the shapes.
