Press 'L' to view large on black.
I noticed Galadriel when I approached her from the back, she was sitting in the shadows at a café on one of the squares in Carpentras in Provence. My first impression was her long, single black braid against her suntanned shoulders, - her in the shadows against the bright shimmering sunlight in the background, and I contacted her after a few seconds.
Galadriel was very open and clearly amused by the fact that I wanted to take a 'portrait photo' of her from behind, but I told her that I just had to realise my first impression seeing her, and she accepted without any doubt at all.
Thanks for our chat Galadriel, I liked it very much and hope you like the photo too !
When serching for name 'Galadriel' I found that Wikipedia claims that the name means The Mistress of Light, and I can hardly imagine a more suitable name for this beautiful young woman.
