Hmm Contemplation, I guess this is open to interpretation as to what she is contemplating. The image is so peaceful and yet so powerful, it is always as is there is an unknown element to the image that we cannot see. That moment when you close your eyes and the world continues to spin around you, feeling warmth on your face and knowing that you are a very small moment in time.
This image is built from photos I took in Edinburgh. The background is part of the built up area near the castle. The lady was stood in the street at Edinburgh and she was being animated as normal. It was overcast and the clouds parted for just a brief moment. I watched her carefully from a distance and then she closed her eyes to greet the sun and that was my moment!
