The Streetcar of Desire by alophoto

The Streetcar of Desire

The moment is forever etched in my mind. He was tall, dark and handsome and sat beside me on the streetcar. I was disappointed when my stop came and I had to exit his warm gaze. I stood to go and he hesitated then started to get up, too.

Could this be his stop? Or is he following me? I was unsure if I should be excited or frightened. I hurried off the streetcar into the night. And I turned around and glanced back and there he was waiting under a lamp post.

"Miss, you've forgotten to give me your number."

Ah, nothing to fear. I would make him mine, not a stranger any more.

A moment frozen in time, in the city at dusk, under the light of the crescent moon and the glow of the street lamps. He in his hat and the saxophone playing on the corner.

Have a fantastic weekend. Me and my man will:).
Pretty friggin' amazing shot. FAV

So very very awesome! Love the capture and the story! I'm hoping there will be a chapter 2!

An amazing presentation!

Ummm...is this a real street? A movie set? A still shot from a film/TV? A mockup? None of the above? Too vintage to be real, real. Great image in any case.

@eyeamlisa Nah, we met at a club and I approached him. And actually at my friends youth group years before that when I was just a kid.

@mcsiegle Museum has a scale model of Cincinnati back in the day. It is incredible...so detailed. This scene called to me...loved the lights. Just a cell phone snap, that I was quite pleased with. It needed a story, too.

Looks like a scene from San Francisco .... What a great model and excellent story and cell phone capture. Why the heck do we carry around the big heavy black box when a small little devise produces this?
July 10th, 2015  
@lesip Right? Last time I lugged the box and got a shoulder ache.
