Quiet moment at camp

Since I have been at this for a while, I sometimes feel as if I'm taking the same picture over and over. I'm not referring to subject matter, but rather to my habitual style of framing, composing, and choosing angles of light. I recently spent the day at Calumet Lutheran Camp in West Ossipee, N.H. The combination of religious and camp activities offered many visual delights. I shot plenty of well-composed images, taken from a variety of angles. Each photograph answered questions about life at a Christian camp.

But something was missing. I wanted more. Poking around during an open camp activity time, I noticed a girl standing alone. I shot from a distance and then moved close enough to find out her name - Amanda Kling - and to learn that she was weaving red, white, and blue gimp strands. The scene said "camp," but it also contained elements of introspective mystery. I like this image because it raises questions. And I don't know if I've ever intentionally completely obscured a subject's face.
