Will admit to a fascination (with utmost respect of course!) for people with
deepest darkest skin – so naturally beautiful :o)) … Shot from the hip!

This youngster was walking with her Mom in front of me … couldn’t help but try to get a few
captures of her utterly amazing hair and beautiful face, while walking along behind her :-)

    Such a great capture Ell, beautifully framed and wonderfully lit, ever so just highlighting the girls face and those amazing ringlets

  • Thank you so much Jus! Utterly gorgeous girl!! :-))
    Will admit to some luck with this though, as it was taken from the hip/point & shoot with fingers crossed, so to speak … only bit pre-planned was ISO/exposure/shutter speed – the rest was ‘hope this works!’ ;-)
    Could have taken endless shots, but didn’t want to get sprung and walloped by her mother!! ;-) Satisfied with the few I got :-))

    I just love your crop! Beautiful shot!

  • Thank you so much Rose :-))
    Crop wasn’t planned, just how it turned out shooting from the hip while walking along behind them … love doing images like this sometimes, just for fun and to relax from concentrating on planned images – sometimes you can get some unexpectedly good shots! :-)
