Beautiful black and white Julie.

A photo beautiful.

Black and white does a better job of focusing attention on the main subject. With color we might be distracted from seeing her wispy white hair, round spectacles and calm demeanor. I like this very much.

What I'm most drawn to in this stunning portrait is the texture. The texture of her skin and her hair and her jacket. A remarkable piece of work, Julie.

Joan Elizabeth said...

Julie, this is a stunning photo. From the crisp sharp well composed image, through to the interesting subject to the slash of light in the background.

Julie said...

Did you note that she was reading the 'Financial Review'?

J Bar said...

Julie, yes the 450D and tripod made a world of difference.

Did she pose for you? I know that was your FT. Good work anyway. Reminds me, I used to wait for the 500 or 501.

Julie said...

Nope, her paper and no posing whatsoever. I just had to wait for her to look up each time to check out the number of the bus she could hear approaching.

Woody said...

It's great!

I feel uncomfortable photographing strangers. I guess I need to get past that!!

LD said...

Wow you've got some remarkable shots here. Glad I found you. As an aside I noticed you're a fan of 40's swing. Love it!

I love this in b&w, it keeps your focus on the woman.

Ann said...

Nice one. Like the way the light mirrors her eye line.

Beautiful photo. I've also spent time waiting for a bus to Bondi. I don't remember being this patient.

Those lines etched in her face have so much history to tell...

Birdman said...

Fabulous portrait this morning, Julie.

J Bar said...

Julie, the Slik tripod is 1.27kg and 56cm long, folded. They're very popular. Apparently, they're selling a pile of them every day.

Jilly said...

Absolutely superb portrait. This is one wise lady I'd think.

Regina said...

Awesome and classic Julie!

Fantastic portrait. She looks very wise and her choice of reading material supports my thought about her.
