Friday Foto Finish Fiesta!

I'm joining in again with Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta, so here is one of my recent favourite photos: This picture was taken the day before KD's brother's wedding. JK is charicteristically trying to remove the pretty bow that M put in her hair. This isn't a technically terrific picture, but the reason I like it is because M is a beautiful, beautiful person. I had just met her the day before. She is the new wife of one of the groomsmen, and they live in Slovakia. They came to Canada for their honeymoon so they could be in the wedding. I had the opportunity to chat with M, even though we sometimes had trouble understanding each other. Her English is pretty good, but I wasn't very good at simplifying my vocabulary so that she could understand me. Despite the few communication troubles, I discovered that M is a warm, open, loving, beautiful woman. Talking to such a sweet person simply made my weekend. And she's an amazing dancer.

  1. Candid pictures are so fun!

    By the way, I think we either have the same eyeglasses or very similar ones. Are yours Anne Klein? Mine look SO much like yours and I love mine!
