Amazon Woman

img_1964I doubt that this beautiful lady’s life is some romanticized imagining, but, she certainly didn’t need to smile or even tolerate me. She could have told me to eff off. Instead, she put up with my lens.

  • I especially love this last photo. I imagine her to be an expert paddler glancing up at another person on the river content and confident in her boat.

    • Thanks for the comment! I would like to think that she is happy and barely notices us tourists who buzz around.
