The kids around the block this one always speaks with me. Clever, articulate comments we laugh often.
From a developing series of strong working women. Her eyes are smiling of course.
On my strolls I often pass by this mans house. Today he was mowing the lawn a gesture he rolls the mower to me. I start to tell him who I am he says he sees my photos of flowers. Today I shoot portraits of you and others along the way.
Strong working women these two landscapers were as happy to be subjects as I was to make their portraits.
The milk man is too quick for me missing him twice on this stroll.
September 9th I met this man. I had been sitting on his wall trying to gather myself as my walk was longer than planned. I got up and he was in his driveway and had not seen me behind a bush. I said hi and thank you for having a perfect height wall for me to rest he laughed. He said I glad it was right, this is a great neighborhood.
The tomato give away was visited by only these two neighbors. Photo’s are not required to pick my free tomatoes. There are still more to pick four varieties of cherry tomatoes see you soon.
Again a couple young women made my day soar but when I realized there wasn’t a CF card in my camera down went my mood. Went home got a card was scolded by Fe. for not checking. We went back up Carlyon to Safeway they were at the bus stop on Capitol Way. Parking at Safeway we rushed to re-shoot. Forgetful is my middle name. The re-shoot was OK but the first session in my mind was better. Amazingly fast walk for me exhausted but pleased.
Ya I couldn’t decide two solos, or just the duet. Love smiling faces the world expands before them. They are the future thank for posing.
Look around there are many stories told, you can incorporate your own history. See a file or a tag to offer you selections of the theme you wish to explore.

One day when I was tall in the milk refrigerators at Safeway. Her choice was on the top shelve looking for an employee I stepped in reached it for her and she said yes to a portrait.
July 7th out strolling I needed a place to sit and tie my shoes. I called to her can I come sit in the other chair? To tie my shoe? We sat for 5-10 minutes talking before she agreed be photographed. Sparkling eyes.
