|8/15/20 Maple Leaf neighborhood|
Early Saturday morning in this alley has a special kind of quiet: Some sleep in after a long work week; chores and errands haven’t yet begun. Open summer windows reveal the soft clinking of breakfast starting. In the distance, someone opens and closes a trash can lid.
Technical note: Following the advice of nearly everyone I’ve ever learned from, I started with a thumbnail. I liked its composition, but when I mentally fixed a perspective problem, I decided I liked a square better.
