This photo was taken in London, on a sunny afternoon when a group of school girls took a break to sit in the shade, searching for protection from the hot sun. One of them did not. One was different when she chose to sit under the sun. The photograph emphasizes the difference, with the line of those sitting in the dark in the background and the” different one” in the foreground, illuminated by the sun.

I like this simple moment very much, and I took this photograph as it was offered, as a gift and an opportunity. Each time I look at it, I remember than there is no need to fear being different and not to follow the stream.
