I rarely shoot a straight up portrait like this. However, this time it just seemed right. Not as an iconic image, and not my style, but simply as an appreciation for this exquisite face. I made many photographs of the rather shy Dasha , from the Ukraine, shooting pool, playing with her friends on the beach etc., yet for some reason this straight up shot in broad daylight on the Avalon fishing pier seems to stick..Dasha worked at a miniature golf course, Galaxy Golf, in the outer banks as part of a foreign student exchange summer work program. I think Dasha will return this summer. I hope so. Miniature golf anyone?
