Some days I spend a lot of time wandering around with nobody catching my eye. The masses move with heads down, buried in phones or studying the crack patterns in the sidewalk, most silently absorbed in their own world. The blandness on this day weighed down on my shoulders and I felt the creativity being sapped from me. Then across the plaza a splash of colour caught my eye, her brightly coloured floral dress standing out amongst the concrete greyness.
This is Cammie. Though initially surprised to be asked, her friend encouraged her to participate and I moved her to a better lighting location. She works in a tea shop nearby, a retail position she really likes because of the calm atmosphere of the shop.
