I was walking amongst the hustle, bustle, Holiday season chatter on cheerful Banhoffstrasse in Zurich when I happened to look into a shop window and saw this "angel" looking into space wearing a strange expression--one part bored, one part lost, and one part distressed. The shoppers inside and outside seemed to be swirling all around her but she remained perfectly still, unaware of the buzzing street. At first I thought she was a display but then she moved She was wrapping a gift and had stopped midway, frozen in her tracks by a stray thought that had disturbed her in some way. I then clicked.
