Fascinating shot - I already came back to it twice already.

Thanks, Carl. And sorry for the late answer (back from trip, lot of things to update...)

I like the way everyone assumes she does not want her photo taken, maybe she always has that expression on her face.

Absolutely right.

I like the clever use of vignette and also I was not sure whether those are trees in boxes on either edge of the photo? It almost looks like holes in the walls, which is where the slight edginess creeps in for me.

Actually, the "vignetting" effect is a direct result of the available light, with a spot on the painting. and, yes, trees in boxes.


I'd really love to know what happened after you took the shot - did you have an escape planned down a nearby fire escape? Did they say anything?

I was going, with my wife, to the exit, on end left of this corridor. I stopped 3-5 seconds to take the picture, the woman looked at me, I gave my usual "thank you" with a smile, she smiled back.
