my mother's not too fond of this photograph. i took it on a whim as we were walking out to see what had happened after we heard gun fire down the block. she just looked so calm and fearless (and she is) at such an intense moment.

    When was this taken? I like it.

    thank you. 1999.

    Did you scan this from a negative? Do you shoot black and white film often? By the way, you don't seem to sleep. Which time zone are you at?:-)

    sorry, it was in 2000! i shot this on a very old kodak camera i bought for R90, using b&w film (i used to use b&w film often but not as much nowadays). i scanned the pic--the added grainy texture is because this pic has been with me everywhere (its almost ruined-had to save it). im going to sleep, i promise--its only 9pm where i am.

    @ ngujaz: you should be more sensitive since there's stock in our midst*
