Mary and Ruth

On a gorgeous September day, I met Mary in West Hartford Center.  On another gorgeous September day I met Ruth.

Mary was walking three white fluffy dogs.  I learned that they are called bichon frises.  I took some photos of the dogs and some of Mary.  Mary exudes youthful energy, enthusiasm and vivaciousness.

A few days later I met Ruth, an artist from Simsbury, near the same kind of planting.  Ruth is a grandmother just back from visiting her family out west.  She has a calm, poised, mature charm.

Actually, both of the photos show two charming women, both of whom I'd like to meet, also.

Jack, you are showing off your portrait skills again.

It's nice to meet both of these ladies.

The fact that the Grandmother lives in Connecticut and her family lives out West reflects a common demographic trend.

Jack, one of the talents of great portraits is putting your subjects at ease. You have this down pat, you charmer. Both are fine subjects for your camera.

Proof - if we needed it - that you can look good at any age.

I love both portraits, two women with beautiful energy. (How absolutely wonderful you had an English Springer Spaniel and for 17 years! What a great companion Toby must've been...and very missed.)

Splendid portraits, Jack!

Two lovely ladies.

Your skills at street portraiture get better and better. I like the difference in the eyes. Maybe try a little rule of thirds?

Lovely portraits Jack, and as Ciel pointed out..two lovely women at different stages in their lives.
