Woman with a red umbrella

Or should that be woman in a pink coat?
Or even; woman with a rainbow shopping bag
And a brown handbag.
Or why not; woman with dark tights and grey shoes?
Or maybe; woman with grey hair.

If it were a man, would it be entitled ‘Man talks to a car driver’?

Let’s start again;
woman trying to find a way home in
Washington D.C during the bus strike in 1974.
Or better still; woman negotiating a taxi fare.
Or the best I can think of:

Woman talking to a friend about the rain and how annoying it is to get home during the strike but she supports the strikers as how else are they going to get a better wage and we should all stick together as we are all wage slaves at the end of the day.
