This old photo of mine, which I liked expecially for the textures and white-on-white aesthetic, reminds me (in composition) of the many Bonnard pictures in which women are painted off in the margins, onlookers more than participants.  This is often my preferred role in any scene—the quiet observer, the one who slips by almost unnoticed.
