I tried to shoot some more for this but this series of 4 images that I shot midway in the challenge week were the ones I came back to. Of the four this is the best focus though if the last were in as good as focus I would have liked it better. The window of the cab was closed and the air conditioning was supposed to on but it wasn't so the window got opened. Then I heard her speaking to herself, then I saw here and then I shot away. Fortunately there was a red light and we were about 20-25 feet away. I would have liked something closer in and the crop on this sort of does that. That ledge at the top left is distracting but the rest I really like a lot. Hope you do as well. Hope she makes out OK. Hope I do as well. Hope you do, too.

With your title, I almost expected color. Clean capture, good conversion.
