Three Faces



Yup, I do still take an occasional photo of people I meet down here, although I haven't posted any of them before.  Bob is in his mid 80s.  Every day at 3 p.m. he drives to Naples' main street, where he meets with a bunch of people he has met at a friendly coffee shop.



Tricia is holding Diva.  She was at the Red Dress Race.  Is she attractive?  I didn't notice . . .



And, Gary works at the cash register in the historic Smallwood Store on Chokoloskee Island outside Everglades City.

What a great cast of characters! They look great behind the camera.

I like all three photos but especially like the one of Gary as he looks so natural, not posing.

Nice portraits here Jack. I think that lovely lady could get a job as a model.

More great faces--thanks, Jack. And you know you're a hoot, right?

Looks like a very nice spot to be just as the moment. Lots of sunshine and people out having a good time. Super portraits.

Great people shots for the day, Jack, and three very different ones at that.
And that's what I like the best -- the wonderful variety that make up all our worlds! Hope your week is going well! And, yes, you are a hoot indeed!!

Three different types for three very good portraits!

Great portraits Jack!

Maybe Bob is hoping to meet Tricia. Or Diva. Gary? Well, he looks like a typical Florida cracker which he probably is working on Chokoloskee Island!

Nice portraits!

Brilliant portraits. Were you too engrossed in Diva's... er... tongue?

SRQ said...

Once again, you've outdone yourself, Jack. I particularly like Gary and his setting. It screams Florida swamp.

Ed said...

I've always enjoyed your portraits. Has anyone ever refused to have you take their portrait? I can't get up the nerve to ask people I see.

That pup steals the show.

Bob looks fab for 80. Can't underestimate the salubrious effects of the sun on one's bones.

The dog doesn't count?? There are four faces, Jack!

Wonderful portraits! Esp. Gary. You've taught me a lesson, need to be less shy about asking folks to take their pictures - such marvelous faces.

Karl Demetz said...

Beautiful portraits, Jack, as usual!

Stefan Jansson said...

Nice trio. All very different from each other.

Gunn said...

Four faces!:)
Anyway, great portraits!

Jilly said...

Love these portraits, Jack. And what character. Is this Naples in Florida? I'm presuming so which makes you a snowbird. Is that right? Do you remember Isabelle who used to blog from Naples on CDP?

Splendid portraits, Jack!
