Today I stopped in to see Rebeccah’s tailoring shop. She wasn’t there, but her nephew greeted me warmly and showed me around. (It didn’t take long: the shop is about 100 sq ft.) I asked if I could take some photos. He very happily agreed, then bustled around, arranging things and staging the shots. “Can you see me if I stand like this?” “Should she be over here or over there?” I suggested that they just continue their work and let me take some photos that way. A customer arrived to pick up his clothes, and the nephew excitedly told him, “She’s shooting a film!” Seems like I'm always disappointing someone.
