  1. What a cute picture (although I'm sure she was probably going for a serious, mysterious look). Wherever you were, it looks like it was a fun day or night out. - G

  3. Love the expression on her face and the way she's staring straight down the camera...

  4. Kids are so great in front of the camera. They do not exhibit the self-conscious mannerisms of adults. Great portrait. Love the black and white!

  5. There is something haunting about this picture, maybe the hands.

  9. Cross her palm with silver. With a lot of silver, because those are some big palms.

  11. Georgina - Thanks! She was indeed going for the look. I think it lasted for about an hour. It was at her great grandmas birthday.

    jesse - She looked at your palm and saw the sign of the wolf...

    Talli - She's an actress...

    Stickup Artist - you are so right. At this point, I'd prefer not have my photo taken...

    Budd - Thanks! I thought it would come out best in B&W

    Warren - I'll be long gone before then....LOL

    Brian - I think so!

  12. She scares me a bit. I think I'm still traumatized by Children of the Corn. I'd say she has an acting future, if she wants one.
    Happy Turkey time!

  26. Great Thanksgiving photo - or any time. She's gorgeous and kids are such cool subjects.

    ReplyDelete
  27. What great intensity! I'd maybe(just maybe, I like the snapshot feel too) crop it from the sides to make it more portrait-y.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I actually knew a guy who was kidnapped by gypsies when he was a lad. This would be in the 1930s. He recently passed away but had a great story to tell. Parents had to pay gypsies to get him back.

  29. There's a story in those eyes!

  30. Gypsy Girl...that's what my father has called me for years and years ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. she has a very exotic look about her - gonna be one of those drop dead gorgeous women

    ReplyDelete
  32. tapirgal - Thanks! They do make good subjects...

    Saranna - Thanks that is good advice if it was taken as a portrait. However, I'm not a big fan of them. I like the old snapshot candid feel of a pic like this one. thanks though!

    Stephen - The place I grew up in always had a gypsy presence. One time I lived across the street from some. They were very intersting.

    Jenny - Thanks Jenny!

    Ree - Oh yeah, and she'll tell you all about it also...

    Kato - That's funny because I called her that for a short while afterwards.

    diane - hispanic, asian, and white...

  33. Cool stickers are way better than tattoos in my book. Yup, she's seriously into it. Model material for sure.

  34. What I'd give to know what she's thinking now. Brilliant shot of a child who clearly knows how to interact with the lens. That's a rare, wonderful gift!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Rosemary - I know, I think they are balloon stickers! LOL...

    Carmi - She will pose or act for the camera anywhere and anytime!
    thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  36. Dear Pat

    I'm pleased so many people are enjoying your blog now but all the comments are jamming my inbox!

    I've always signed up to read what other visitors say but I can no longer cope!

    So . . . from now on, although I will continue to visit and to comment, I won't be ticking the little box for later comments to be forwarded. Nor will I necessarily read what the people before me have said. It's a bit anti-social but . . . well, otherwise, I will have to make reading what's here my life's work!

  38. Lucy - I understand! As long as you continue to stop by and comment I'll be happy! You've been with me since the very beginning and I'll always appreciate it.
    Thanks Lucy...

    John - She's a little charmer! Thanks!

    Icy BC - Thanks so much. I really don't like taking pics of people unless they are candid. But this one is an exception. I've taken so many...

  39. I assume she is your daughter...and is indeed lovely. You have to be lucky and proud.

  40. That is the cutest gypsy we've ever seen. She's really trying to sell it.

  42. Pat, Sabino Canyon is indeed near Tucson, but I can't remember if it's south - maybe southeast?
