The fresh pretty face of a girl my camera so loved
At first I imagined she was a visiting Italian beauty to New York from Milan when I first spotted her at the bar. She was dressed nicely and carried herself like beautiful European girls I have met. I couldn't really hear her accent over the music that seemed loud as she asked Carlos, the bartender, about a particular specialty cocktail, and, too, my visual was partly stuck on an image of Cristiano Ronaldo, the world's hottest athlete, and his Real Madrid football team winning on 3 flat screens above the bar.
The beautiful girl with long auburn hair was seated one bar stool from me. By the time I turned around from the screen her fellow turned up. I had not even noticed when he sat next to me and was between us.
Normally I do not ask to photograph anyone. But this girl was so beautiful in my eyes I had to ask because I wanted her know just how beautiful I found her to be. A compliment both she and her boyfriend appreciated.
Seems we both love taking pics. Practice pics with our cellphones of everything in sight. So she shared some of her images and she and I and her boyfriend laughed about that our picture taking obsession . No, She has never been to Italy, was not Italian but of Irish descent, and has lived in Paris, which explained why her top-notch style. She and her boyfriend are both from Ohio.
I liked this couple so much, I would love to have a real opportunity for a photoshoot of her in different clothes and settings throughout Manhattan.
