This is Zelda with a "Z"
Yesterday was her 8th birthday and she was eating a birthday pickle while waiting, with her family, for her table to be ready at a nearby restaurant. Zelda ("with a Z" as she told me) was as precocious as they come. When I asked if I could take her photograph she said "of course!" when I asked if others had asked before, she said "hmm..."surprisingly...no..." When I told her there was a famous writer named Zelda Fitzgerald she said "F.Scott's wife...I have her biography, and I plan to read it when I'm older."
Hmmm... that's likely to be next week.
Zelda is my 32nd entry in my 100 Strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at www.100strangers.com
