Stranger No. 16: Cool Sweetheart by lancelonie, on FacebookBeautiful Blue Behind Those Glasses

I was taking photos of her and her friend's bicycles beforehand and never thought that the owners will be my models, too...  I knew it - a girl with a summer hat and a cool attitude would never say no for an answer!

I was taking down her name on paper when she said, "Actually, it's Molly with an IE." :)

Well, I must say, Mollie gave me two challenges that afternoon. First was name spelling and second, eye-color capturing.

In my other posts, I mentioned the eyes are primarily what my focus are.  Here, as you can see, she had her eye glasses on.  This being a street shot (as opposed to stylized portraiture), I didn't feel comfortable telling her to take them off.  I was the one asking for a favor so whatever this young stranger was  wearing, I shouldn't change that.  Besides, the shot should be realistic; that is, whatever was there on the street, take it.

So, I brought this home and found out later that behind those Superman spectacles is a pair of beautiful blue eyes.

Mollie, by the way, was the first to wish me, "Good luck with your project!" as she biked away with her friend.  I thought that was really sweet!
