With this photograph, Mark Rosales manages to make his subject -- a young woman on Hollywood Boulevard -- appear as if she is entirely separate from and oblivious to her bustling surroundings.
For the shot Mark says he used a Fujifilm X100 with a fixed lens of 23mm (34.5mm equivalent on a full frame).
