This is one of the favorite photos I’ve ever taken. I’m not sure why. But I always loved this photo.
I think I like how the photo captures the fleeting nature of life. How we’re all here dancing in the moment. But our bubble will burst all too soon.
The person on the bench is this obese crazy black street woman. She’s been around for years. I used to see her sometimes late at night in the basement of the UC parking garage, actually sitting inside the dumpster, eating away at all the day-old pastries they throw in there.
Usually she’s just quietly sitting on a bench with a sad, soulful look on her face.
All kinds in this world of ours.
