    yes, she's the one shaking the fist at me in one of my previous photos.
    all of a sudden she took off her sunglasses and turned to me with that expression. needless to say, i was confused. that's when i got "megan, i'm letting you take my portrait!" in an exasperated tone.
    my grandmother was a swimsuit model as a teenager. she's still as fierce and beautiful as ever.

      compelling. Maybe a tighter contrast would be an improvement to an already super portrait.

      Great portrait. I love a portrait that tells more about a person than the usual smile people give when you point a camera at them. However on another level I think it could use a hair more contrast.

      Beautiful. I'm amazed she actually let you take her picture without her sunglasses. I doubt we'll ever see another picture like this where she's looking straight at you! Good job Meg!

      what a face!!! great moment!!!
      I like the portrait but maybe if the sky wasnot SO white... I know, you can't change the colors of nature... but a bit more contrast would make it better

      LOL, the story is great.....we can certainly get more meaning from photos when there is a tale to tell along with it. Nice job.
