I saw the girl sitting in the afternoon sun, playing with her phone (I think), not really minding the world. I snapped a few shots and walked on. I had already gotten the shot of the rocket, it was taken almost a year ago and I have been wanting to use it ever since I took it. This felt like the appropriate moment.
I think the marriage of these two images works well and gives it an almost dual identity. The rocket could be that of war or exploration and the girl could be experiencing anxiety or anticipation, or maybe she is simply daydreaming of the perfectly possible…
That’s my feelings anyway, feel free to share your own
