Photographer's Note

i have been discovering how much people (americans at least) LOVE to dress up in costume ... which gives me endless opportunities with my camera.

fortunately, i live in a town where people dress up at the mere suggestion of a get together. but even when i travel, i see that this is a common 'thread' or passion for many people.

my challenge ~ as always ~ is the street photographer's conundrum: how to grab them in as spontaneous a moment as possible, while striving for as clear and sharp an image as possible.

this usually leaves me with no time for set up and a resulting soft focus.

but for me, for the spontaneity of that look in her eye -- a little of that 'come hither' expression that says "don't i look beautiful wearing all these flowers?!" -- it's worth it :)
