Some More Folks


Zdravko is a retired anesthesiologist.  Originally from Macedonia, he practiced in Granville, Ohio, the home of Denison University.  Zdravko is 84 and recently had a knee replacement,
but his golf handicap is still 7.



Le (top) manages and Rosemarie (below) is a sales associate at Lily Pulitzer on 13th Avenue South.



Roger is a Collier (County) park ranger, stationed at Freedom Park.  He has had a varied career, working as a forest ranger, National Park Service ranger and a state park ranger out west.  For ten years he and his wife drove a recreational vehicle around, picking up work wherever they ended up.


And, originally from a small town in Ecuador, Irma now lives in Naples with her husband and their three daughters.  She tries to take the girls back to Ecuador yearly, so they
stay connected to their heritage.  Irma works for a cigar importer.

A great series of people. I think you have a great talent for taking these type of portraits. Each photo you post has a certain genuine feeling about it.

I'm also struck by the diversity of people in Naples. But I can certainly appreciate the appeal, especially in mid-winter! Love some of the sunny colors you've captured here, not to mention the sunny smiles. You do have a talent for getting people to smile.
