Margaret and I walked toward the midway at dusk. It can’t be happenstance that the setting sun provides the arch’s evening backdrop, indigo and blush, drawing people in.
We had been drawn to each other this night, our third or fourth date. We walked and talked, occasionally pausing for a photograph. I carried my Olympus XA; I gave Margaret my XA2.
But upon this scene I let go Margaret’s hand. I wanted to frame this photograph properly. It might have been the only time all night I wasn’t touching her.
