The Smile Queen

It’s hard to say exactly what this lady is thinking. She seems to be reacting rather negatively to my camera. But the thing of it is, she was chatting happily with a couple of people as I passed by and didn’t seem uptight or angry at all. That’s the thing with street photography in 1/800 of a second you only catch a tiny fleeting glimpse of someone. What you think you see, you probably don’t.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

  1. Yes, some people do react in strange ways. I saw her yesterday while I was doing some macro photography of flowers and bees using a new ring light. She seemed to be enjoying interacting with the many visitors in the Garden.

I'd love to hear from you
