1/125 second, f/5.6

The light in this picture is structured the same way as the light I talked about a few days ago here when I was photographing doorways on Guerrero in the Mission. Both on Guerrero and in this Chinatown playground with Mabel Watson Payne, the subject of the photograph is in a shaded location while abundant sunlight is being reflected onto the subject from nearby surfaces. This bounced light is so soft that it creates almost no shadows.
