Great picture! I looked through some of her photos and was reminded of having seen that wonderful shot of kids playing atop the entabulature of an apartment building and one kid scooting up a column to join his buddies. I Just saw one I love that she caught of a woman getting into a cab. So simple, yet there's a whole story there.

We just need to look, because there are great scenes to snap with our eyes everywhere we go. I often wish I had the nerve to take a camera into a grocery store.

She was amazing. Another artist I discovered in an old Horizon book as a kid and fell in love.
