While culling old photos, I came across this shot taken with a tiny pocket camera three years ago. I hadn't done a black and white conversion of the shot, so here it is.
Something happened along her back. It looks like a cutout, but it isn't. Or it least I don't remember cutting and layering. I'm not sure why I would have done so because that's really where she was sitting. Maybe it's from sharpening in Aviary, Flickr's editing tool. Anyway, that edge bothers me. I could probably fix it in Photoshop, but I'm too lazy.
By the way, she didn't see me until just after the shot. She flashed a great smile when she realized I was shooting her. That rattled me and I didn't get the reaction shot. I'd be less likely to miss it these days because I'm better at standing my ground after I'm seen. Often, the reactions are the best shots.
We saw Sicario in Evanston last night. It was just *meh.* I heard a discussion on NPR that led me to believe it had some psychological depth, but it was really just an action film, and, IMO, a mediocre film for that genre.
Before the movie, we tried a restaurant in North Evanston. On the way there, we could not help but notice swarms of NU students on the sidewalks and loud parties spilling from houses onto front lawns. Ubiquitous Solo cups suggested alcohol was involved, and that observation was further supported by the sight of first responders attending to a girl on a sidewalk near one the parties. She was on her feet, but looked wobbly as paramedics removed a gurney from the ambulance.
When we were closer to the restaurant, we realized that NU had a night game, which explained the the commotion on the north side of the city.
