I'd wanted for a long time to find this picture, which I knew was somewhere in amongst the thousands I've uploaded into Flickr. If I'd been meticulous about tagging photos, I might have found it, but I just ran across it when I was going back into the blog archives to find those quotes about solitude.
I'm posting this picture again to celebrate finding it and to think about why this was a picture that always stuck in my mind. I don't take many pictures where I get close to strangers, because I feel that it's an intrusion, but in this case, I thought the woman was so interesting-looking that I made the effort to ask for permission.
