    thanks for the comments
aoc shot in the street in industrial north not very pretty backgrounds
i had 5 minutes to ask and take the shots as the bus was coming
the young lady is a local authority carer for the elderly.
i have been dabbling in candid street photography but was pleased with the result of the meeting

    Well done Shawn - you had quite a few firsts, so the lady's sense of style really hit a chord with some people.

    Wow - I had no idea this was yours - not your usual style. Really good stuff! It was my #6 so I thought it would be much higher.

    i keep coming back to this one. in my favorites. waiting to see who will blink first.... her or me.
not always easy to photo strangers. you've probably found the easiest way is to flat out just ask them. usually works. obviously this woman is not bashful which helps.
well done.

    Nice image... I like the light, shallow depth of field that really brings the image forward and the intensity of the gaze of the subject. The whole '50s vibe that the subject is going for makes her an interesting subject...

    A very powerful portrait! And her gaze is just amazing! Great framing & exposure. Easily at the top of my faves. I'm thinking if this or the "Time & Space" in the Open is the best overall in the challenge. Nevertheless this is just beautiful!

    A terrific portrait of a very interesting lady. I really like her sense of style. A bit crowded at the top, but otherwise a great shot and one of my favourites.

    Veronica Foster in the flesh! She was the Canadian precursor to the American fictional propaganda tool Rosie the Riveter. Super portrait, I'm guessing she has a lot of individuality to carry the style off on an ongoing basis.

    You got me with this one. Nostalgia no doubt. Just a great rendering of the '40s-50's look. A top favorite.

    Striking portrait, interesting costume - would prefer simpler background, perhaps with complementing color.

    the young lady S contacted me and said some hair was flying around her neck. this would have lost her points
