She was the school janitor at a school where I worked once. She would always ask the same question any time I'd take her photo: "Am I going to get fired?"

Great image, her expression supported by the story is captivating. Good choice to go black and white, it doesn't look overdramatic but it provides the audience with a cleaner focus.

@Laces: I got into the habit of maximizing the contrast with all my black and whites around this time. Life has enough shades of gray. ;)
