What a catch!

Grabbing snaps from a moving cab can be a quick way to fill up a memory card with nothing much at all.

But you can get lucky, or in this case, very lucky.

The little girl on the chair, with her feet dangling just above the footpath and that dramatically lit roller door backdrop could be a picture on its own. But the cloaked woman, her hands clasped as demurely as the child’s, instantly evokes a story in the viewer’s mind. It’s such an intriguing little tableau, that I can even accept that bicycle wheel in the bottom right corner.
