Crystal

CW. My favorite waitress, Crystal, at the Ranch Hand truckstop, was dressed for the occasion as she served us our corned beef and cabbage dinner on this St. Patricks Day. What could be better on a day when its snowing and windy outside, again?
Nicely done. Is the signature new to your photographs? I have my corned beef in the oven and it has a few hours to go. I will make a dish called colcannon that has potatoes, kale, and onions in it. Roasted carrots on the side. Looks like this usually: http://365project.org/darylo/365/2013-03-17 Happy St. Patrick's Day!

What a gorgeous portrait of Crystal, Ross. She looks like a sweet young lady. Not a fan of corned beef, though. I'd cry every year on St Patty's day when my mom made it. Tonight, we have pizza:).

Sweet portrait, Ross. Happy St Pat's!

Very nice portrait of a lovely girl. The corn beef and has sounds yummy. Guess I didn't plan ahead. We're having leftover chicken casserole tonight. Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Very lovely portrait. Not sure what we are having for dinner tonight. My husband does all the cooking. Yes, I'm very spoiled.

Cute girl! That was nice of her to pose for you! Glad you could eat at that truck stop again! :)
I keep forgetting it's St. Patty's day... must be the blustery weather out there. Guess I'd better get out the food coloring and make something fun for my boy to eat! (Green eggs and ham?)

Great portrait. She's a beauty!

Beautiful gal and capture. If it's snowing and windy, you should had told her to get warmer clothing... LOL.

@darylo I started adding a signature a couple of weeks ago after discovering a couple of stolen photos, Daryl. Enjoy your dinner.

@amandal @cathieg @aglennc @moxy @smellychelli @soboy5 @anazad511 Thanks, everyone. Crystal is a lot of fun, and a terrific waitress. Three generations of her family have worked at the restaurant. I couldn't resist her St. Patricks Day outfit.

Love this shot. She looks so festive and happy. I hope you had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day dinner. Wow, more snow and wind. It is a bit windy here and sunny with no rain in the forecast. I had someone today comment on an older photo of mine and she has not been on this site for very long. I have got to get my name on my photos or a caption for those that will look appropriate. Looking forward to more snow photos.

Lovely photo. She is really photogenic. Why don't you try to talk her into wearing all blue for a photo, it would really show up her beautiful blue eyes.

@darsphotos @taffy @zambianlass @quietpurplehaze @liuting @sioux Thanks, everyone. Crystal always brightens up the room, and I couldn't resist her green costume. Sue, I totally agree on the blue idea.

@monkeykid @libertylady Thanks Therese and Alice. She's a nice girl and a fun waitress.

Crystal, you're one good looking girl!! St Patrick's Day passes us by in the UK largely.

@seanoneill I'll tell her about all the positive comments when I go there for pancakes, Sean.

Lovely portrait, she looks very sweet. Looks like a nice natural light source. One suggestion might be to have her step out from the wall ( if there was room) and use a wider aperture to try to blur out the background a bit more. She's a natural beauty.

@mccarth1 Absolutely right, Kerry, but this was a grab shot in a busy restaurant. I really wanted to show her festive St Patrick's day outfit, and had no hope of setting up a really good photo. Thanks for your comment.
