I was browsing the photography books by the front of the store when I saw a picture materialize out of thin air.
I took the shot and the clerk said 'no pictures.'
'I'm shooting out of the store' I said.
He got a funny look about him as he pondered the establishment's well known 'no pictures' rule.
'I don't care' he said.
But I could tell that he knew that the shot wasn't a total transgression of the store's policy.
I went back to perusing the photography books.
He went back to his silence.
She finished her cigarette.
The ripple made by my Nikon's shutter faded into the universe and this picture is all that remains of the moment.
