Since it's International Women's Day, I will share some of my favorite photographs of women.
This first is one of my all time favorite photographs, period. I was downtown with my camera exploring when I saw these beautiful women putting up flyers. It took me 45 minutes of being on the same street with them to work up the nerve to ask if I could make a photo - not out of fear on my part, but out of respect for their privacy. In the end, I decided I couldn't let the opportunity pass - it isn't every day that I see people owing their glorious individuality with that much pride - so I just asked. And I'm so, so glad I did. If anyone knows them, please put them in touch with me so I can send them a print!
This woman was at the Pecan Street Festival a couple of years ago
Round Rock's Ballet Folklorico dancers are also my favorites
A few portraits I have made of my beautiful friends
And, last but certainly not least, the women in my family.
Vive la difference!
