She absolutely does look serene! Very unassuming and beautiful! How do you get the confidence to go up to someone on the street and ask to take their picture? What do you say? I want to do this but I'm so timid!

Ah, to wistfully glance into the distance... A prerogative of the young and beautiful.

... Great. Now I have a Britney Spears song stuck in my head.

I've been a reader of your blog for a while, even though I rarely comment. I love your focus on portraiture because it is the genre that I think you do best -- simply because you have a way of capturing something about who the person is in your photographs. They are special. Not that I don't love your Central Park photos and photos about the streets of New York. I do. But it seems to me that you have way with (and a love of) people that comes across in your blog.

Well done for finding your confidence phase. She is lovely and I like her gaze. Xxxx

Your Street Photography phase is my favourite and your work has even made me brave enough to ask people for their photographs. Brooke, when someone says No, it's not so bad at all. :)

Ellen put it best. You have a knack for bringing out the best in the portraits you take.

I agree, she's very chic! I've never been able to ask anyone if I can take their picture-I just sometimes sneak and do it like a crazy stalker!LOL!


Thank for the praises and commons, but I think I looked silly...

great photo!

It's classic. You need to put together a book of photography. Thanks for sharing and drop by me too, soon.


I like the off-camera gaze a lot.

I hope to get the nerve to photograph strangers some day!


I like all your phases. Just don't phase out.

Yay for finding that confidence! It's such a struggle for me and it's sort of becoming a hindrance now that graduation is creeping slowly and the thought of having to push myself outside of my bubble is fear inducing.

She looks so sweet.

Ah, yes the phases. I know exactly what you are talking about. I switch hobbies. The last few days it was photography, now it's ... ah, actually I don't know.

Love this picture and I think it's rather intriguing that the plaid only shows in the color shot.

I too go through phases with my content. I went through an "Hermes" phase where I desperately searched out birkins constantly. Now I'm on the downside of my multicolored hair obsession. I think being a photographer lends itself to obsessive behavior. Although I'm sure a PhD could write a thesis on the connection between our drive to meticulously document reality and obsession.
