The Price of a Hat!

Uploaded: September 05, 2005


The hat cost me very little. The price for my dughter was an hour or so 'modeling' so I could continue trying to learn portrait photography. She was also waiting for dinner too - which oddly, was late that night! This is one of the resulting images. I may post one or two others as I was trying different things.

Great portrait capture, Janet! Lovely hat and beautiful model you have there! Looks great in B&W!
Maria-Ella's image is something completely different, but I like that one too, nice framing, don't you think so?! #1802738

Thanks Jenny and Sanjay. Hi Mary-Ella - seems we are sharing. If anyone knows who to ask to separate us - please do so. I have to go to work now. Otherwise lets just share! #1802755
