Pavan Kaul from Mumbai, India

A fabulous portrait of this graceful and charming lady! Her face is so fully of history...a life well lived..she seems at peace with herself and the world....! Your composition is wonderful Adela, the light and detail have been superbly captured! Great shot!

2 Aug 2010 5:12am

@Pavan Kaul: The air space is limited ... but nevertheless you can always find someone interesting near you!. She sat behind me engrossed in reading. Beautifully arranged and totally absorbed! He did not realize the target that was approaching! Thanks you very much! Best regards, Adela

rem_la from Villiers, France

un portrait bien studieux !

2 Aug 2010 5:26am

@rem_la: Tout au long du voyage n'a pas bougé! Absorbé dans son livre! Merci beaucoup! Bonne journée! Adela

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Nice capture. I love the grain. It matches the feel of the woman. Your peeking through the seats gives this an interesting forbidden and intimate feel.

2 Aug 2010 5:52am

@Bettina: In the limited space an airplane can not do wonders! This lady was sitting right behind me! I liked his face and concentrated expression. I decided to do a portrait! Attractive older women! Thanks you very much Bettina! Best regards, Adela

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

Shots like this are great, and bye the way take more balls than I have got! Well done

STEED from Somewhere, France

Original Portrait of an Original companera de Viaje.....Love the oppositions of tones of this robbed instant....Great One,Dear....

@STEED: An airplane is a confined space ... but you can also make gaps photos! Thanks you very much! Best regards, Adela

El pare from Prepirineu, Andorra

La serenitat de la senyora està excel·lentment representada. Aliena a allò que està a punt de pasar-l'hi, esdevenir coneguda arreu, està absorta en una lectura que sembla troba molt interessant.
Un retrat ple d'humanitat. Quina manera tan bonica de començar la setmana, un viatge, un llibre...
M'agrada molt. Salut.

2 Aug 2010 6:25am

@El pare: Pots imaginar la situació amic Manel! Aquesta bona dona s'estava darrera meu. Com molt be dius absorta en la seva lectura. No va dir "ni fava" en tot el viatge! No me'n vaig poder estar de fer-li una fotografia! Moltes gràcies Manel! Que tinguis un bon dia! Una abraçada Adela

Nina from Haute Loire, France

Un très beau portrait de femme autour d'une histoire... Ses traits laissent penser qu'elle aussi est détentrice d'une histoire... On aurait envie de la connaitre!

2 Aug 2010 6:53am

@Nina: Une gentille dame! Très propre et parfumé! Absorbé par sa lecture. J'ai dû faire un fototrafia de préserver sa mémoire! Merci beaucoup Nina! Bonne journée à toi! Je t'embrasse Adela!

Phil David Alexander Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

She appears lost in her thoughts as she reads, giving the impression
that she has read something of great importance and that her mind is
engrossed in thought. A very beautiful portrait of reflection.

2 Aug 2010 7:27am

@Phil David Alexander Morris: You are right. It was exactly as you say! He left to read the entire trip! I like to remember in this picture! Thanks you very much! Glad you like it! Best regards, Adela

Sarito from Basingstoke, United Kingdom

Wonderful shot.. like the B&W touch. Looks like the spy is at work :).

2 Aug 2010 8:27am

@Sarito: Spies can not waste time! What other possibilities are there on an airplane? It's best to look inside and outside the cabin! Thanks you very much! Best regards, Adela

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

Sneaky candid portrait. Nicely captured

2 Aug 2010 9:04am

@grouser: I turned in my seat and saw there ... still and absorbed in her reading. With an elegant gesture in his hand! I could not help grouser take the picture! Maybe an indiscretion? Photography lovers are naturally indiscreet friend! Thanks you very much! Glad you like it! Best regards, Adela

@Carmen: Buena vista también Carmen! Los textos completaban muy bien el atractivo de la dama! Una gran personalidad, seguro! Muchas gracias amiga! Te deseo un buen día! Adela

David from Detroit, United States

What a great candid! The framing is excellent-- it gives the impression of peeking through the seats and between the other riders. A very interesting expression on her face. The high contrast b&w is perfect, too.

2 Aug 2010 1:06pm

@David: Indeed the picture I made between the front seats! Thanks you very much! Glad you like it, Best regards! Adela

Jose Luis Bernal from Jerez Fra, Spain

Pa quitarse el sombrero !!!!!!

A partir de ahora, no me relajare ni un solo momento, ni cuando bostezo, ni cuando me miro en los reflejos de los escapaeates, ni cuando me quedo dormido en el avion, ni cuando leo sentado en la taza del baño, ...

En cualquier momento, puedo ser pillado por tu maestria.

Felicidades por la composicion, el foco, la exposicion, por la eleccion del B+W, ...

De las mejores que te he visto. Un 10 amiga.

Que pases un buen dia.

2 Aug 2010 4:04pm

@Jose Luis Bernal: Por lo menos una de ellas no te la haría nunca en la vida! Me incomoda solo de pensarlo. Mi educación no me lo permite! Lo que si he notado es que cada vez soy más atrevida en las tomas! Una señora encantadora leyendo entre el breve espacio de su butaca y la mía... púes adelante! Sabes una cosa José Luis? Me encanta hacer fotografía! Esta afición me pone en mucho atolladeros pero también me ayuda a superar momentos difíciles! En este caso concreto el terror a volar! Muchas gracias amigo! Un abrazo desde el sur al norte (del sur!) Adela

Magrat from Nordhausen, Germany

Hello my dear friend... again you've found a wonderful "subject"... a great portrait of this reading lady, a photographer in his/her studio would have needed hours to arrange her in that way! I really like it... Best regards and thanks for all your comments, Adela... :)

2 Aug 2010 5:01pm

@Magrat: When I turned in my seat and I saw I caught his look sweet and concentrated in reading! I looked after a while and was beaten. I decided. I was going to make a picture ... I did not think twice! When I saw my home screen and I thought that I was mistaken. It was just as I remembered! Thank you for your words Mariana I appreciate because I love your photographic look! Glad you like it! Cheers my friend! Adela

kiwisa from North Shore, New Zealand

She is very elegant engrossed in her book- - - a glimpse of people we pass in our daily lives is not easy to capture. You are very brave and inspired to lift your camera to capture the memory forever. 5*****

2 Aug 2010 8:09pm

@kiwisa: When faced with the situation and am very interested in what I see the momentum is to do the photography. I do not cost anything. It is a great pleasure for me. Thank you very much Frances! Best regards, Adela

manel from Girona, Spain

... i la senyora tan feliç; sense la més mínima ideia de que després d'aquest vol real, a les poques hores,
anava a començar un altre vol virtual per tota la xarxa visitant tot un mon de paisos. Aquesta Adela...
Bé, crec que ja estic una mica al dia, al menys amb tu.
Molt bona estada, en companya dels teus, per Carboneras. Reps una forta abraçada.

3 Aug 2010 6:44pm

@manel: Fas be d'estar be amb mi... sempre convé tenir als amics contents! Moltes gràcias Manel però no calia que et prenguessis tanta feina... encara que t'agraeixo molt la marató! Una abraçada Adela

Lovely travel candid . . trips are made of moments like this !

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks you very much! Best regards, Adela

TERESA from Es Castell, Spain

Bon dia Lalena! I jo que no hi era. He estat un tant absent. Però no me podia perdre aquest viatge curt però aprofitat des del primer moment. És un gran retrat d'una passatgera que es despreocupa totalment del paisatge des de dalt, per què?, ja ho veurà després més aprop i l'aprofita, tal vegada, preparant-se per seguir una ruta, o passant un temps, moltes vegades perdut. Una abraçada, Teresa.

4 Aug 2010 6:08am

@TERESA: Ben a prop l'una de l'altre... no me'n vaig estar de fer-li la fotografia. En cap moment va apartar la mirada del llibre! D'això se'n diu aprofitar be el temps oi? Moltes gràcies Teresa. Una abraçada Adela

cristina from Barcelona (Catalunya), Spain

jejeje una foto robada! molt bona, esta ben bé concretada! m'agraden aquestes fotos Adela

salut

4 Aug 2010 4:27pm

@cristina: Moltes gràcies Cristina! Una dona molt atractiva i elegant! Feia ganes de retratar-la! Adela

Belén from Salamanca, Spain

Has estado en el Louvre! Es la mismita sonrisa de la Mona Lisa!. Es excelente amiga mía. Impresionante el juego de la camiseta de la señora con el cabezal del asiento como ha dicho ya Carmen. Lo que a ti se te escape...Un beso grande, grande, grandote

4 Aug 2010 11:26pm

@Belén: Bien querida amiga! Si he estado en el Louvre unas cuantas veces y además he tenido el placer de ver a la Gioconda sin tantos problemas como ahora! Mérito de la dama tener su misma sonrisa! Este punto es cosa suya... lo demás si dependía de mi interés en pillar todo lo que tenia que pillar! Si lo conseguí... una gran alegría para mi. Se lo merecía mi encantadora compañera de viaje! Un abrazo querida amiga y un buen día de mañana... Adela

David Nos from Barcelona, Spain

Fotografiada per l'espai entre els dos seients, sense interferir amb la seva interessant lectura!

6 Aug 2010 4:52pm

@David Nos: Cal ser prudent per no molestar i que no s'enfadin també! Moltes gràcies!

Isidro from Barcelona, Spain

me encanta el retrato de esta señora concentrada con su libro y los detalles de los adornos brillantes de las gafas pendientes y camiseta, sin duda un robado de lujo Adela, salut!!

7 Aug 2010 5:41pm

@Isidro: En el sentit mes gràfic de la paraula! Moltes gràcies Isidro!
