This couple was waiting to get their car. It had just been serviced. I talked with the woman when her partner went to get the car. She told me how shy she was. She had a slight accent. I didn’t have the time to listen carefully as our conversation was short. Between her accent and her mannerisms, combined with the cigarette, I think she was French. I love this picture. Were it not for the cigarette, the picture would be perfect.



Serviced: Taken care of. The car has had a tune-up. It has been taken care of.
Partner: Your romantic interest who you normally live with. Partner is gender free and does not contain any marital information. Still, if someone says, this is my partner, I assume they are not married.
