Yesterday I photographed a young woman, who needed some photos to submit with a package for ballet school. She's really sweet and a dedicated student. She spent the whole night before studying hard, had a full day of classes and then came to me and danced her heart out. She did really good. I'm sure she won't have a problem getting into the school.
Here is a photograph I made last week. I took this photo the day after it had rained here pretty well. Most days I photograph the flag with clouds in the background but on this day not a cloud in the sky could be found. So I saw this picture in the reflection of the water.
Program: Aperture Priority
Focus Mode: AF-S
White Bal.: CLOUDY
ICC Profile: Adobe RGB (1998)
