Point well made. This is why these threads are so addictive - they help me open my vision further. I did wonder about the woman, who is she, what lead to this point, etc., but it was not enough to 'grab me' like some other photos. Now that you have presented a somewhat different view than mine, I can see a bit more possibility that before. Thanks!
