The little superstar

It is 9am, the town slowly wakes up. In front of me a coffee and two small croissants freshly baked. It rained last night, but the colors of Argentina make it harder for grey tones to prevail.
I look out the window, I see depth, the curtain and the brick wall could border a shot. I raise the camera to my eye, pre-focus and wait for something to happen. A few passer-bys’ make it in the frame, not much of interest. Then suddenly, she appears riding her bike with energy, her shirt says she is the superstar. And she is, in this shot at least.
