Woman reading scriptures 2
Image by gwilmore (I HATE THE NEW LAYOUT!)
I met this young woman on the grounds of the Mesa Arizona LDS Temple, where she appeared late on a Sunday afternoon, carrying an impressively worn set of scriptures. She was there to read and meditate, she told me. With her permission, I took several pictures of her, after I told her just to pretend I wasn’t there — and adding that she might now acquire some great spiritual insight even as she helped me to develop my photography skills. Thus, this picture and its companion — also posted on Flickr — are posed, sort of; after all, she was simply doing what she would have been doing anyway, even if I had not been present with my camera.
This photo was taken shortly before sunset.
