Took this outside the hospital while waiting for our car.

I am hugely impressed by how your eye catches these moments. Were you detailed oriented in your worklife, Matt? It just seems like for the past few months you've spotted the potential in so many moments that many of us would miss. I really like this shot! As I wander about within the frame, I enjoy the leading lines and great variety of textures, and how the reflection appears to meet the real thing (building behind) and then wondering what these two people are thinking about, both obviously totally lost in their own thoughts. The dark wall on the right makes a great stopping point for that edge of the composition, forcing us back into the scene to find even more interest.

Did I mention I really, really like this? :)

Thanks, Linda. Detail oriented? Yes and no. I was ceo of two different organizations over a twenty-year period, so I had to think small and then think large. I sometimes surprised myself and others at the detail I retained on budgets, for example, without attempting to memorize them. But I would quickly skip to the larger issues.

So, on this one, did you happen to notice the third person?

I find I like reflections in windows, puddles and shiny surfaces. Appearance/reality I guess.

Thanks for your thoughtful and detailed reply. Helps me see what I saw. Matt

That is successful on so many levels, and Linda caught and described them all. Really, really well done! (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thanks, Chuck. Noticed the new avatar. Cool. For your consideration:
