Theme Day: People Watching




Today's worldwide Daily Photo Theme Day is "People Watching." This is the most unusual people watching photo that I have. No, I did not pose this woman. No, she was not posing for me. She was posing for a man who was taking photos. I took this photo with a strong telephoto lens from a long distance, and then I cropped the photo so that the man was outside the frame.

I do not know if she was a model or why he was taking photos.  It was sufficient for me to be able to "poach" on the scene and take a photo as well, watching from far away.  The golden glow of the sunset on the water and the sun backlighting the flowing gown provided a special touch for the photo.

 This week we are showing photos of the architecture of ancient Khmer temples of Cambodia on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

What a fantastic shot! She almost looks like a fairy standing on the beach. The light is perfect.

WOW!!! This image is just beautiful and the essence of the theme! I can't stop looking at it!

Kate said...

One of the best photos today, Dave. Almost a silhouette...the gossamer gown and the light are very romantic. Looks like she's loving being alive!

Meghan said...

It looks like she has fairy wings! Amazing shot!

J'adore this image Dave, she looks like a nymph from the sea, wearing a sea weed dress..the only way we know she is human is by her reflection in the sand..I envy you this shot, it's superb.

Judy said...

Nice one, Dave! She looks quite flexible! Beautiful shot.

That's a marvellous photo. If she's a model, then I'm one too because that's what the sea makes me feel like!

Randy said...

Oh wow! Are you sure this wasn't posed? I'm mean this is kind of a once-in-a-lifetime capture. Frame it and hang it!
