    When I lived and worked in Southern California I spent a lot of time sitting at traffic lights. One day, stopped at a red and first away when green came, I decided to photograph people as they crossed in front me. Usually I used an Olympus XA (or XA2 or XA3) which I almost always had with me. Anyway, for a while whenever I found myself first in line at a red light, I would hope for some interesting pedestrian to cross in front of me. It made my commute a little more interesting. Here's an example of a Crosswalk Portrait. In this one I like the anonymity the couple's blown out faces provide.

    Ghosts! And a bunny bag. What more can we reasonably ask for from a photograph? Brilliant!
