"Writing in the Park" by Bruce Backus


I was walking around Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis, Minnesota with my wife, daughter and son, when a young woman on a bike rode past us. When we got to the other side of the lake, the young woman was writing in a notepad under a tree. I asked her if I could take her photo. She pleasantly said yes and went back to writing. I only took the one frame. My daughter was like “Oh, dad,” as she was embarrassed that I asked a stranger if I could take their photograph, but having my family there made the encounter innocuous and the young woman ignored me when I took the picture.
