    Here I was on a beach trying to fiqure out how to get a good angle on a piece of driftwood that somehow righted itself on a beach :scratch:

    When along came a woman and a whole bunch of youngin's. The kids took a shining to the tree and started playing on it.Well I am a firm believer in going with the flow so I asked the woman if it was O.K. to take pictures of the children and if it was O.K if I could post them on the internet. She said " yes" :cool:

    The girl on the right is a real natural in front of a camera. The girl on the left has an amazing complexion and such mysterious eyes

    And finally I asked the woman if I could take her picture also:

    She gave me her e-mail address and I sent the colour version pictures to her. I may give her the url to this thread so she can view the B&W's also.

    Hope she likes them, after all the price was right. Plus I had a blast taking the pictures. :mrgreen:

    Love the last two. Excellent captures. So, exactly how cold was it on the beach? Not sure if you are having a blast of the same warm air we are having in Southern Ontario.

    Thankyou Iphoto and Airic

    We have had a warm blast of air here for the last week, it was actually above freezing but a very strong wind from Lake Superior. Warm weather and a Saturday afternoon to kill in Feburary = Photo taking time.

    Thanks Nytmair and JonMikal , I enjoy doing things off the cuff, makes life more exciting.

    Glad you noticed the treatment I gave them, I spent an inordant amount of time converting the last Pic to B&W. The orginal came out pretty fair to but most of the time I prefere people in B&W.

    Here's is the orginal straight out of the camera.

    I think people in small communites are more open and relaxed when it comes to strangers. I took the pictures about 45 minutes from home in a community of app. 500 people. I am going to start asking more people, the worst that can happen is they will say no.

    Thanks all for you vote of confidence and comments :)

    That's a great series! It looks like the entire family was very photogenic. They all looked very happy to be there. I love the B&W in all of these shots. :thumbsup:
