It’s very hot today. The brutal temperature probably influenced the way she looks.
There’s a particular stairway in the old section of Petaluma, CA that’s quite narrow. I have found that by standing right at the top of it, I’m often able to take some pretty good candid portraits of people climbing it. The dark smudges on the wall behind them as they crest the landing makes a rather good background.
This lady with the furrowed brow and striking very long blond hair was a lucky shot I got about an hour ago today. I say “lucky” because she was moving very fast and there was only one quick chance to take her picture.
A mellow day, warmish and dry. People were happy with themselves and with each other.
To me he looks right out of the hippy 60s. I think this look is probably passe by now but I really wouldn’t now. (Not really hip anymore…as if I ever was.) That said I like this portrait. He looks like a pretty nice guy.
