Betsy


This is known as the "I'll kill you, Jack, I told you I don't want my picture taken" look.
It is the variation used by a very nice person who won't really kill me,
however much she thinks I deserve it.

I hired Betsy when she was one year out of college.  After a half dozen years, 
Betsy and her husband moved out of Hartford so he could take a job in metropolitan New York.

Last year, his company relocated its headquarters to Southwest Florida,
so they now live nearby again.  It was great to see you, Betsy.
You should have the decency to age, like the rest of us.

Smiling through gritted teeth...but her expression says she forgives you too. She looks lovely and I'm sure you hired her for her brain.

Kay said...

That certainly doesn't look like an "I'll kill you" look.

A wonderful portrait, even if she wants to kill you!

What a great and natural portrait Jack. I can see from your recent work that you are getting more and more comfortable with street shots. I love them and I can see that you do too.
