Getting hit

This lady avoided catastrophe, but only because the cab decided to slow down at the last moment. It was so close you expected it to happen. Delayed waiting for bags at Midway airport, I had popped outside to a place where I could see the carousel and this view of the arrivals corridor. She knew he was coming but kept walking. You can tell that she turned her head at the last moment to see how close he was getting, but it would’ve been too late to move out of the way. Despite all of this, she didn’t even flinch. There was a moment where I was waiting for the camera to fire while simultaneously watching this happen and wondering if I was about to capture something gruesome. It wasn’t a good feeling. I actually witnessed a kid getting knocked off his bike a few weeks ago, but he wasn’t hurt. This felt just as ominous as it played out.
