"Take Our Picture"


Quinesha (on the right) shouted for me to take her picture.  When I turned and aimed my camera at Tamara and her, they became shy.  They didn't think I would do it.

Really lovely photo- they look rather bashful which adds to it.

M. Jack, you seem to be a very charming man, if I consider the number of lovely young ladies you attracted and pictured those last days.. :o)

Jack, this is a wonderful portrait as you have engaged them in conversation and yet captured a candid moment between the two of them. Bravo!

Bises,

Delightful photo Jack, and I think the fact they're not looking straight at the camera makes it all the more so! You charmer you!!

It is hard to be shy carrying such a boldly colorful umbrella.

Kate said...

Yes, you certainly did capture a delightful photo of two young girls who are enjoying life! You probably "made their day!"

Spontaneous photo, lovely portrait, Jack.

Regina K said...

I like these two, teased you into a photo with such a colorful umbrella.

You are right Jack about centering on the statue, sometimes I think I want something else but then when I see finished photo, I find I should have done it differently. I need to broaden my views and look at things differently.

I can only add my praise to that which has already been heaped on. It's such a perfectly captured candid and the umbrella colors set it off beautifully. Bravo!
