    We visited Foster, RI today, took in two separate events.

    First we visited Foster Days, which is a celebration of rural New England life held annually. Upon leaving we saw a Northern Narraganset, Native American Pow Wow.

    I took many photos today and wanted to share these faces in their own space.

  2. #2 in particular is a great portrait. Lots of connection between the camera and the subject.

    P.S. You should always ask a lady if she wants the soft-focus look

    P.P.S. Are there any photos of you wearing a hat?

    Hi Nic,

    I think my favorite thing about her was that she was just plain happy, just the way she is. Lots of character.

    ps. Nope. No hats for me today..:smile:
