Little Girls at the Clothesline

"This is one of my favorite photos. I took it on the Laguna plaza just minutes after taking the shot that would eventually become 'White Man's Moccasins'. I was taking a walk in the afternoon sun, and these two girls came out to hang dishtowels on the line to dry. The towels were quite worn, and some had holes in them. I liked the composition, and the way the light and clouds created a casual mood. This shot is completely spontaneous, and the girls were not aware of my presence. It's a true slice of life on the mid-century pueblo."
