Mary Ann from Tampa


One thing I have learned while doing this blog is that
I can sometimes walk up to a well-dressed complete stranger and say,
"You have a wonderful classic face; may I take a photograph of you?"
and Mary Ann from Tampa will courteously say, "Yes, you may."

Sure is fun shooting portraits of strangers isn't it.

Andy said...

Jack you are so much more charming than me. :)

Kate said...

Well, that could be considered a new approach! It always works, tho!!

Birdman said...

Nice. I'll leave the faces to you and BC. You've got a way.

Lowell said...

Are you sure this isn't your cousin, Mary Ann, from Tampa? It's a lovely, soft portrait!

Sylvia K said...

Ah, a charmer with a camera you are indeed, Jack, whether the lady is a stranger or a relative!! And my weekend is off to a perfect start -- giggles and blue skies!! May your fun continue!!

Seriously Jack! I'd be shaking in my boots doing that :) That's why you and Steffe get all the good portrait shots!

VP said...

No way I could do this... You deserve all the credit for these beautiful portraits!

CaT said...

You do have a "green shutter finger" when it comes to taking people photos. Another lovely shot that I bet Mary Ann would love to have a copy of.

Kay said...

It's clear: honest flattery will get you everywhere. You're right: a wonderful, classic face. Well done!

Luis Gomez said...

Indeed a lovely portrait Jack.

You might be able to sweet talk Mary Ann into letting you photograph her, but it wouldn't work on me. I run from the camera. I like being BEHIND it!

A wonderful portrait, Jack!

Randy said...

She resembles Meryl Streep.

Lois said...

I would not fall for that one either, but I'm glad Mary Ann did! She has a nice smile.

RedPat said...

You are so brave, Jack! I am too shy to do that.

You got the technique down. Always talk about and flatter the subject. If they decline, apologize for bothering them and find an more receptive subject.

I'd like to see her eyes.
