“The Girl With The Camera”

During December of 2006 we spent two days in London en route to Israel. Although the weather was cold and gray, we spent much of our time outdoors. My 17-year-old daughter brought along an old film Canon Rebel she borrowed from a friend. Being an artist, she spent much of her time trying to capture interesting shots she could later paint. After a few years of urging her to try photography as another outlet for her artistic expression, I was delighted to see her using her camera as we walked along the rainy London streets. We were crossing the river over the Millennium Bridge when I noticed her leaning over the edge photographing something along the water’s edge. I happened to be holding my camera so I was able to capture her photograph against the backdrop of the city. I actually never found out what she was photographing below the bridge…
