The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.

It was one of those times when I found myself photographing downtown Redwood City, a city of 87,000 souls, during the witching hour. I don't remember seeing anyone during my shoot, which made it a perfect time to capture the solitude and somber side of this normal busy place. The table and chair were there, just exactly like in the picture. I thought they added to the lonely nature of the scene. It is interesting how many of us think we need to travel great distances to capture unique images. All we need to do is to look closer to what's in our backyards.
