Lovely Lady

There was this lovely lady at the fetish fair yesterday. I kept seeing her in the crowd. She had the most radiant smile. It hurt my heart every time I saw her. She was alone but having a wonderful time. Finally, as Mauro and I were heading out, I saw her one last time. I approached her and asked to take her photo. She seemed so sweet. I should have asked her name but was happy enough just to get to photograph her. There were plenty of strange sights at the fair yesterday, but she sure wasn’t one of them.

    She does look lovely. I’m sure she was flattered you asked to photograph her. You should have asked her name 😉

    Yeah, Dave – why didn’t you asked her? She’s really lovely…

    • To be honest, by the time I ran into her again and asked if I could take her photo I’d been out in the hot sun for hours and was a total sweaty mess — it wasn’t pretty. I was sweating right through my brown paper bag. 🙂

      If I’d been cleaned up I actually might have taken a chance and chatted her up. But I’m very shy so who knows. At least this way I don’t have to deal with rejection, right? 😉

    Not right – the absence of possibility for rejection is the same as the absence of rejection 😉 And because of a lot of sweat, Dave, come on, that’s such a lame excuse. I’m going now to pick up my “Sweaty People”-Draft and dedicate it to you 😉

    • Damn… never argue with a psychologist. 🙂
      I really was quite sweaty. I had sunscreen on so I was afraid to wipe my face of the sweat since I’d also be wiping off the sunscreen. I’m sure I wasn’t at all attractive to the opposite sex that day. But you’re right, I should have at least asked her name and given her mine. I’ve got these neat little Lazy Photographer business cards coming in the mail and when I get them I’ll be able to simply hand them out to people I photograph. And I really am very very shy with women, unfortunately. It’s always been a struggle for me to talk to them. Anyway, now I’m sounding like I’m making excuses. 🙂

    Dude, you really can’t let moments like this pass you by! Something about her struck a chord with you and you let her get away???

    Let’s hope fate gives you another opportunity to correct this wrong! 🙂

  6. That is when you ask if she’d sign a model release. You know the kind where you HAVE to get her name, address, phone number, email address, shoe size, etc. BTW, I am so glad this is the photo you were referring to and not the Full on Fetish guy. 🙂

  7. Damn with a smile like that, woman or man, no one photos and runs! Oh Dave! Yes, a card. Yes, you took her photo–a perfect opening for connecting–yes, getting the photo to her in return for the pose. OOOO Dave! Nothing ventured, nothing gained–but a photo of a wonderful spirit–or soo it seems. Okay, we can we do to BUILD your cofidence in such situations, sunscreen or not. Hey it’s not all about IMAGE either. Seriously image is just image. All women are not so shallow as to be put off by sweat on a HOT day. Davey, Davey, Davey!!! With photo art ‘eyes’ like yours you should belive more in your own personal creative energy essence to attract equally appealing energy. Believe in yourself, Davey. Cards if nothing else hand over a card!!!! With much Support!

    She is lovely and I for one totally understand why you didn’t go forward. Maybe she will be surfing the net one day and find you?
