My star...... "Bu"... my dear niece, 9 years old....... she's very funny & humouristic, but can be also very pensive..........

Jean-Fran├žois: nous nous avons rencontree au Cyberspace!!!!!
thank you so much for yor comment, JF! you can't imagine how difficult it was to shoot these 2 plus 3 more images from my niece, because she doesn't like being photographed... well, at the time she doesn't really like many things... she's at that age where you have to show the world you're starting to understand it and have an opinion... but it was great fun doing it! maybe she'll let me tray it again, with her eyes closed...

Hi Gaby !
You're right about this, and the difficulty to shoot pictures of teenagers makes this image still much more good !

This is beautiful.... it has a mystery about the shadows!! :-)

Gabriela Cunha level-classic November 04, 2003

Adam, you do have some impressive portraits of very good looking people, in your galery! thank you very much for your comment!
Carolyn: thanks for commenting! it's very good to feel I'm now starting something new... I just feel like photographing everyone I know, at the moment... LOL! poor them! but most seem to like it!
Lynn: thanks! I was afraid it had too much shadow, because I had taken 2 or 3 before, of other people, where I found, in the end, that it was so shadowy, you can't really see much..... but that didn't happen with this one, in the end...
