The Ghost of San Pellegrino

I was in Istanbul on a business trip and I spotted a woman sitting two tables across from me while I was having breakfast at the House Cafe.
She had a striking face with Asian shaped eyes focused on her iPad. I wanted to take a snapshot of her, but it was impossible without being noticed. I hid my camera behind the San Pellegrino bottle in front of me and, as I was trying to get a reasonably clear image through the green glass, she got up and walked away. I pulled the trigger… and this is the result. Mysterious enough? Shot with the Fuji X10.
