I met this girl three years ago, working at a Starbucks in New York. She doesn't work there anymore, so don't go looking for her. Anyway, something about her really captivated me. I had to capture her on film. It took me a year and a half of my patronage to really establish enough of a relationship with her for me to work up the courage to ask if she'd pose for me.
This one's obviously been tinkered with, but I couldn't help it. ;x
There are many more, but those are some of my personal favorites.
