Eleven times brave.....!



The theme for CDP'ers on this first day of March is 'people on the street'. I confess that despite making it my New Years resolution.. that and losing 5 kgs :) to become more confident in approaching likely 'candidates' and ask the question, I still get apprehensive and in some cases just can't do it, but looking back at posts since the beginning of the year I have been brave eleven times.. and that's not counting the 'photo-napping' or the Southern Elephant Seal nicknamed Stephen Sealberg :) getting better! Taken at the Japan Festival on Sunday the young girls above were more than happy to pose for me. It'll take some time to get as confident as Jack or Stefan but it's a start! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, take care..... To see more 'people on the street' from around the world Click here.....

  2. This is wonderful! They all look so cute and innocent in their various costumes. It's amazing but most people are happy to pose for the camera if they're asked nicely. Photos like this warm the cockles of my heart! :)

  8. Yes, I find myself a bit too timid as well. But my resolution this year is to change that. You are off to a good start this year. This is a wonderful group portrait.

  11. I guess people dressed like this expect to have their photo taken. It came out rather well.

  12. Oh, Grace, so funny! I looked for something work-related stuff today and found the reports from grade 1-4 of my school-years, It says in grade one I was "very shy".. great on you to ask people, non? Gotta try and follow your footsteps (in some... time...).

  14. I've heard Australia is home to some of the world's friendliest, most upbeat people. Your photos pretty much confirm that, Grace!

  15. This is a really cute grouping, Grace. (These young women didn't dress up like this to be invisible . . . )

  18. P.S. I loved that Calder MoMA work you shared, so lucky you had that piece traveling to your neck of woods!

  19. Yes, just like Japanese cartoon women. A little outside of the Crowe family value system. If I ever get to Perth we'll go out for a walk and I'll show you how to get people to let you take their pictures. And it won't all be because of my cute American accent.

  24. It is an excellent photo, I never dare to ask, I just snap them on the street with a zoom. I like them more as a snaphot and not posing.

  25. What great "happy"outfits. There seems to be a touch of retro happening there.

  28. These girls are all so cute. I would have stopped to get a photo of them too and I'm worse about doing that than you are. I love the polka dot dress with the strawberry handbag.
