Young waitress working in a restaurant in San Cristobal

For a minute she paused from here job at here parents restaurant, leaned here head against the wall and stared thoughtfully out into the world. Was she thinking about here future or did she just want to go out and play with friends?

I have no way of knowing what went through the mind of this young lady as she stood there in the doorway of here parents little cafe restaurant in for a brief moment and kind of put the world of  San Cristobal del a casas in Mexico on hold. She had helped her apparently elder brother bring us our latte and both gave us a proud big smile as they carefully brought the glasses of hot milk mixed coffee to our table. Her brother returned inside but she stopped in the doorway for a moment and put the life on hold.

I grabbed my camera and framed the look of her long thoughts in my camera and with in seconds this moment was gone. Moment of silence. Moment of short thoughts. Moment of future glance only interrupted by a klick of the camera shutter and then a mother calling.
