Things about this photograph:

Half-afternoon light
The familiar window in Julia's living room, that linen curtain.
Parking lot lines outside
And Ali's face, which has learned over time to confront the camera in the quietest way.
Her body follows suit, and relaxes completely.
Until her head has sunk into the couch cushion.
And her cheekbone catches the light just barely.
After the shutter clicks, she doesn't move. This is how she is.
