Photographer's Note

No respiratory syndrome causing germs were gonna get past her multiple defences. And if they did she was calmly positioned near the emergency exits!

On my way home from SEAsia I had a 2 hour stop over in Japan. This was in the days of SARS. To tell you the truth I was excited for the photo opportunities! Unfortunately, people weren't as panicked as I had hoped and there were not too many on with masks. Though I did find this lady seated in the departure lounge waiting for her flight to leave.

This pic was taken in secret. I sat down in front of her and to her left and put my camera on my lap and snapped up the shot.


Post-pro: Selective use of levels, curves, burn tool, and sharpening.


Ooops!!! Just noticed that the head I removed near her bag (lower left) and filled with black is noticable!!! Because of the glare of daylight on my monitor as I was putting this together I didn't notice until now (it's later in the day). Please ignore and imagine that I had blended it in properly!!! hahahahaha!!!


I have another pic from this location and of the same theme: I'm Watching Your Back
