Boys Tossing Football and Woman Taking Picture, Naples, Florida
Street photograph of boys tossing a football across the bottom of the frame while a woman takes a picture of the sunset from Naples, Florida. Engrossed in their game of catch, the boys are oblivious to the beauty of the sunset and tranquil waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Likewise, the woman ignores the play of the boys as she contemplates the display on her cell phone. Her striped dress echoes the horizontal striations that measure space into the sea and sky even as its visual energy contrasts with the quietude of the sunset light permeating the image. With a posture that makes her seem a supplicant, she comes into harmony with the natural panorama of the photograph.
