Photographer's Note

I came across this contemporary Norman Rockwell scene yesterday afternoon in downtown Asheville. The little girl with the violin, who is playing "Amazing Grace," couldn't see the guy in uniform, leaning on the backside of Asheville's iconic flat iron sculpture, looking lost in thought, as he listened to her play. What a moment to stumble across!

An added bonus (which I didn't see until later) was the distant image of another guy (on the left) whose body language mirrors the uniformed guy in the foreground.

The musicians are in the sunlight, the guy in the uniform is in the shadows ~ what does that mean? Who knows, just fun to play around with that idea. Perhaps he is a just a memory himself...
