I saw the exposed breasts and then they were covered with the hand with the ring. This is not a flash picture but it is made in the same way with a 28mm lens and very close, inches, to the actual ring. So the action of the woman's hand is precipitated by my very fleeting intrusion, only seconds, into her personal space on the sidewalk. I took three pictures at this range, I might have said something calming, and was very lucky.
This picture was taken at the time of the LIGHT gallery.
