Mary (#525) 02-10-14

Mary was carefully using a chain lock to secure her bike to a pole. I patiently waited while she fumbled with the recalcitrant hardware. I approached her just as she was finishing, and she had no reservations about being photographed.


She has been in Sarasota for several years, coming from Georgia. I asked where in Georgia, as I have several relatives in that state. She went to the University of Georgia, in Athens. I asked what she majored in. Her degree is in Historic Preservation, but she rolled her eyes as she said, “But now I work in the food service industry.”

And, so it goes.
