Portrait of a Poet

I had the Most Fun Photo Shoot today! My friend Allison, who is a poet (among many other things, but that's how I most like to introduce her), came to town and we tromped around downtown to all my favorite buildings and spots to take some pictures. She even straddled some train tracks and sat in a random display of chairs outside an "antiques" store! I had been so looking forward to this bit of time with such a kindred - it does a heart some good to be next to another so much the same and I just knew that she'd be game for climbing on things and laying around on things and any other strange thing I asked her to do.
Here's a rough look at a few of my favorite shots - though there were so many good ones, it was incredibly hard to pick favorites!

Daily Bliss: mimosas and a lovely brunch - happy birthday Christina!

Fourth one down and the one on the train tracks are my faves. And I love her pretty blue shirt and Farrah Fawcett-like waves. :)

The train tracks shot is my favorite. There's something about that one just does it for me. What a fun day! You are amazing with the camera...can't wait to see the rest of them!

Mindy - yup. Me too. Exactly.
Alli - you should see the rest of them! The train tracks shots are so great - probably because we were having so much fun by then :)

I've never met Allison but the pictures are fab! She looks beautiful. The train tracks pose is my favorite too.
