Photographer's Note

Ivorian Beauty

I didn’t notice the small group of people sitting outside Roncade Castle, until Marilena (Mari63) pointed them out to me, as usual I must have been too busy talking. I decided to approach them & ask if I could take their photo, I showed them what I had taken & told them that I would happily email then a copy if they so desired, they looked at each other, thought about it for a moment or so & then decided to give me their email address. On returning to Australia I sent them two photos, this one & another of her with her male companion. The very next day I received an email from them thanking me for the lovely photos, they loved them.


"I just think it's important to be direct and honest with people about why you’re photographing them and what you're doing. After all, you are taking some of their soul." -Mary Ellen Mark-
