That comfort zone thing (Theme week: Red)

Red hair

Tonight I ventured out of my comfort zone. While out running errands after work, I was keeping my eyes open for red. Nothing appealed until I stopped at our local McDonald's to pick up a fast dinner. And there was Fabiana, with her bright red hair!

Since I didn't have my camera with me (will I never learn?), I asked her if I could come back and take her picture. (I figured there was no way I was going to sneak a shot in that small area, even with my telephoto lens.) When I returned, she didn't want a candid shot of her working, so I took her picture next to the
McCafé display.

Lesson learned — it never hurts to ask, and I think we both had a few minutes of fun.


  1. Good for you. I need to be bold like this. I miss a lot of good pictures by being too shy to ask.

  2. Nice that she was so accommodating. Great interpretation of the 'red' theme too.

  3. I know what you mean; I'm shy to ask here, since most people here are rather hesitant to let you photograph them. I usually sneak shots....

    She's cute and her hair is GREAT! I have several red-hair posts, since that shade is popular here. If you go to my blog's search box (upper left on my blog page) and type in 'hair,' some should come up!
