Wall Street

Title taken from a line from Robert Creeley’s poem, “The Rain.”

The woman was an extra on a set I came across being filmed on Wall Street in NYC. Although she wasn’t the main subject in what looked like an ad being made, she was the most captivating person on the scene as she kept a sense of silence about her.
