Hey, minimalist web page.

I really liked your Lone Woman Web - it is a very fine shot. With the
slightly threatening folds of the two jackets out of focus in the
foreground, the symetries between the crook of the woman's arm and the
jackets and her gaze and almost smile. The line of the hand bar.

Also window riders and girls.

I take it you've seen Walker Evans shots from the 40s, of people on trains,
completely lost, preoccupied taken from a concealed camera,  Also Bill
Henson, an Australian photographer's, shots of crowds from the early 80s.

If you haven't seen either of these, I think you'd be interested in looking
them up.  See 'The Hungry Eye' (Walker Evans) and 'Photographs' (Bill
