I met this lovely woman while "crashing" a few weddings at the Mesa Arizona LDS Temple. She is from Utah and was in Mesa to attend the wedding of a friend, and we struck up a conversation while she was standing next to me with her point-and-shoot camera and asking me how she should compose the picture she wanted to take. Equipped as I was with my tripod-mounted Nikon D50 with its 300mm lens, I guess she thought I was a professional, so I hope she was not disappointed to learn that I was simply a 52-year-old kid out playing with his new toy. Graciela graciously consented to let me take some pictures of her. I didn't like any of the first few I took, and later realized it was because they appeared too "posed." While she was walking back toward me, I saw exactly what I wanted, and quickly captured this image. She appears natural and unaffected here -- naturally enough, because this time she was not consciously posing -- and I liked the background as well. I promised to e-mail to Graciela the best of my pictures of her friend and herself, and this one will definitely be included. (Postscript: This photo suddenly and unexpectedly appeared in Interestingness on 1/20/06, although when I found it there, it was ranked #381 for the day it was originally posted. The rankings in Interestingness are volatile, and I figure there must have been a recent surge of interest in this picture, so as to move it into the top 500 for that day. I was tickled to learn of this development, however, since the photo is one of my personal favorites, and I have loved it ever since I pointed my camera at Graciela, snapped the shutter, and looked at the result on my LCD screen.) (Update: The first time I ever used Flickrtoys, I had this image put on black. To see the result, click here: 'Graciela' On Black)
