The 411 on Lucretia. Camera: Olympus PEN E-P3. Lens: Panasonic 14mm f/2.5.

As I made the picture of Joe’s Pizzeria the other day, Lucretia (who happens to know my wife) stepped outside her office “just to bug me,” she said. In fact, if you look back at the Joe’s Pizzeria photo, you can see Lucretia’s reflection in the window. I asked her if I could make her picture and she said yes.

I’d like to say that the title and inclusion of the number on the door in the image were intentional but they weren’t. It wasn’t until after I got home and loaded the files on the computer that I noticed the door.

Creativity can be messy and generous like that sometimes.
