3.3 City Girl

As Lem looks at his newspaper, the camera dollies across the street, and an automobile drives by, passing through the space that the camera had just traversed. Lem, who once dominated the foreground of the image, is now barely visible in the background, on the right edge of the frame. We struggle to keep Lem in view as the composition shifts him from the center to the periphery, allowing the urban world to break through the barrier of the frame and engulf our hero.
