Waitress with armful of glasses

Botanica has a new manager, an Englishman, originally from the Islands. Along with him, two new waitresses of great skill and courtesy. Braced with a shared Hemingway (that as yet, unbeatable cocktail, the daiquiri), we drove home to Garrison listening to "A Most Wanted Man" by John le Carré. The journey has never gone quicker. The book is a perfectly aimed swipe at the complicity of all the governments fighting the war on terror; riveting characters and suspense.

  1. Great dignified photo. Glad you opted to narrow the left and right margins- this is all the space she needs. Stunning.

  4. The camera angle looks the same as her ending eyeliner. I love that something tells me she is as kind and friendly as she is confident.
    Maybe because I don't see any tension in her face. Beautiful lips. Beautiful photo.

  5. I see not only confidence in her gaze, but also defiance.

  6. I sometimes like to go back and look over the portraits again, to see if I see things differently the next time around. This time, there is a sensuality to her and to the photo that I didn't detect before.

  7. Why did you pick her to photograph? I am now curious why the second waitress was not chosen.
