Laura, the wedding guest
Followers of my project will have no doubt noticed that a lot of my portraits are made on the Downtown Mall. For those of you who don’t live in Charlottesville, the Downtown Mall is a pedestrian mall made by blocking off traffic to a few blocks of the downtown area. There are a bunch of restaurants, cafes, bars, boutiques, and other businesses there, and when the weather permits — and the weather tends to be fairly mild here in this part of Virginia — the Mall is full of locals, tourists, students, and in this case, wedding guests.
I saw Laura and her friend Chris sitting together on a bench and approached them both for portraits. They told me that they are from Richmond and were in town for a friend’s wedding. Laura is an occupational therapist, making her the second person with that job in my project.
