I made a quick stop at Cathedral Park this afternoon and met MaryLou who said hi and immediately asked if I'd take her picture. She let me know that she spends a lot of time in the park feeding the birds and that she recently got out of a relationship with someone who hurt her badly.

We talked for a few minutes before she packed up her things and headed down to the waterfront and I headed back to my office. I asked if she would mind me putting her photo on my site and she said that she loved the idea and hoped that I'd let people know that its important to look out for yourself and stay away from people who hurt you.
