And the way she looked
Was way beyond compare

    1. I don't know what she is. I never saw her asking anyone for money but she did ask the guy behind her for a cigarette and he gave her one..

  2. Wow Andy, what a great picture. She has a lot of stuff with her on her back, a blanket. I hope she is not a bag lady but on her way to a nice camp with friends.

  4. Perfect!! You captured her expression with such honesty. I do so wish I would learn to get the courage to approach interesting strangers and get their photos

    1. I know the feeling of photographing strangers on the street. It can overwhelm you with fear. When she saw me about to photograph her she stopped and gave me this pose. We then both went our own ways with no words exchanged.

  7. Nice shot! I like the way she is looking at the camera. The guy behind her certainly seems amused!

  8. Yes, a very unique individual. She looks too well done up to be a street person. Maybe she's backpacking her way across Canada, do kids do that anymore?

  10. Wonderful capture, Andy. Far more often than not, I'm too uncomfortable photographing someone on the street. Every now and then, I can't resist and think that I can do it more regularly. Then the next time comes along and..

    You do such a fine job with your subjects.

  12. I agree with Lois. The fellow in the background really completes the picture. And I'm amazed that no words were exchanged.
    And now I have that old Beatles song going in my head...I suppose I could think of worse ones to have stuck in there...8-)

  13. What an interesting look she has. Love her expression. And I recognized the lyrics from that Beatles song off my mom's album. Love that music still.

  14. Andy, great portrait of a most unique person on a cool day. Red and black seems to be her colors. That is an enchanting smile.

  16. Love her look and her youthful style!!
    In trying to synch all my Apple computers/iphone, I've had nothing but trouble since. Back to Apple Tech tomorrow. Scroll bar absent from many sites; working on it.

  17. Is that a "Come hither" look or a "Go thither" look. Great street portrait.
