Hitomi lived in the same apartment building as me during my first few years in Seattle. One day we decided to do a photo shoot so I walked across the courtyard with my camera and a single light.

When I got to her place, I noticed a lilly in a vase nearby, and I asked her to hold it as I thought it would go well with her black sweater.

She held it and I shot a few pictures; this was the best.
