Hidey ho neighborino
This shot was captured when my across-the-way neighbor turned around on his balcony midday Sunday and saw me posing for the self-timer in my church outfit. He pretended not to see and immediately turned back around. Later when I was out there potting flowers in my planter (such a productive weekend!) his girlfriend and I made eye contact and she, too, looked away without acknowledging me.
I can see why somebody might do that — we’re on our personal balconies and saying hello (or doing an awkward half-wave, ahem) means momentarily dropping the charade of privacy, acknowledging that not only can others see into our space but also that we were looking into theirs.
