This caller exhales a cloud of smoke as she carries on a conversation while leaning against a wall of a Fifth Avenue hotel. She carries two bags on her shoulders, as well as a cigarette in her hand. Her eyes are closed, as she concentrates on what he is saying and hearing. I shot the picture from across the avenue, using a long 400mm lens. A taxi interjects itself between camera and subject, giving the image a vividly colored sense of place.
