The Window in the ParkMonday, August 20, 2018
The car was in the parking lot of Queen Elizabeth Park. It was a silver Chevrolet Malibu circa 2007. It was raining. I had walked to the park from 41st and Cambie. I was looking for shelter in the park’s trees. I had not brought my umbrella.
As I was walking by I heard some tapping on the window. I got close and saw this apparition of a woman flattening herself against the window. I had my camera bag so I pulled my Mamiya and shot a Polaroid. This is the result. The woman lowered her window and told me her name was Liz. I thanked her for the picture. The rain stopped and I walked back to 41st to take a bus home.
