I don't normally take portraits but I couldn't resist her. I met her while walking the dogs along the lake. She was fishing. We chatted for a little bit. Here's what I learned: the fish weren't biting today but that's okay. She enjoys the activity not the cleaning and eating of the fish. She has a small white terrier dog that was a stray. She fed it all winter before it would venture into the house. She's almost 80 and broke her hip last year so is now a wee bit stiff. And she loves her pink hat.

She's a treasure!

I like the first one the best but it would have been nice to have her facing the camera a bit more. Nice work regardless, Bambi. :clap:

Push it T. push it! How do you ever expect to become an infamous paparazzi if you aren't going to be rude? With a little bit of luck I suspect you could photograph anyone in this world, but me. :evil2:

Sorry, I can never be rude so I guess I will remain an amateur.

But I do have photos of you and a small dog.......:evil2:

I'm with Grant here - PUSH IT. :evil2:
I too am shy by nature but I've forced my brain to and body to go outside my comfort level. It's gets easier every time you try.

Nice set here but I'm with the Igmeister, I would have loved to have seen all those glorious wrinkles straight on.

I look forward to seeing the results... .This is something I need to get more confident at doing as well, I think Casil is the master at photographing strangers..

I like shot #2 best. Very expressive, tells the story of a life well lived, of hardships endured and victories won. The reflective mood is not something one can capture "at will"; I am with you, Bambi, such shots do not call for "modelling", they are best taken candidly.

Here is one I took in Vancouver, the damn white blob under the nose is NOT snot ... but it ws the only angle I was afforded while taking the shot without being 'found out'
