Today I visted one of my favorite haunts, the Quiznos on Pennsylvania Avenue. The food is decent, but I go there for the sunlight and the huge streetfront windows that afford a great view of the street scene. I decided to take some random snaps of people as they flashed past the giant windows. I pre-focused on a spot, then looked away and began to snap surreptitiously.

Most of the shots were worthless: half-heads, missing torsos, bodies absent altogether. But this one of a girl, angelic and wistful, really caught my eye. I didn't really notice her in the moment, but I became enchanted with her while editing the photo. I hope one day to have a daughter that looks a bit like her--if I'm lucky enough to have a daughter and if she's lucky enough not to look like me.
