The Couple by maggiemae

The Couple

I just love Oamaru for its diversity in character! There are some odd people here and they are quite delightful. Nobody is self conscious and everyone accepts them! These two were waiting for the train to arrive in the main street for the Oamaru Victorian Fete Day!

Three good things:
1. More to come on this day of great activity here in Oamaru
2. Practicing my uke and two difficult chords to remember for the concert.
3. The November pop of roses is just beautiful to see!
A lovely portrait of the couple. Love how you've processed it. Fav!

This is a great candid and your processing to make the background fade but still convey what it is works really well.

That is what, I think one does in presenting a picture in the "best light"! Thanks @taffy Taffy!
