Once Upon a Time in San Francisco...

... there lived an exquisite Tango Princess and her dashing Consort.

And I got to take their pictures... and we all lived Happily Ever After.

***

I never thought that being unemployed would make me even busier than usual, but in amongst filling out forms, looking for jobs, rewriting resumes and preparing for taxes (oy), I am even farther away from "normal" as possible.

I'll have some stories soon, I'm sure. But posting a pretty picture is better than nothing.

Hope your holiday weekend was wonderful...

xoxo

Hi TB, how are you?

This really is a gorgeous picture. Of course, it helps to have gorgeous subjects, yes?

It's kind of strange seeing them look so... I guess the word would be serious, so full of gravitas, when really they're so lively and cheerful. But I suppose I shouldn't break the illusion. And not that they don't pull it off beautifully.

So are you going pro with the photography? And if not, why not? I honestly don't see how you couldn't be the next Leibovitz.

Agree with flawsnall, so unreal, so beautiful!

Being busy is good. Happy job hunting.

wonderful capture. Love her dress. She's rocking that and keeping him close enough but I love the hard to get aspect of it too.

oh dear me, my fave tango teachers have been captured in a beautiful dream by your magical eye.... i'm off to flickr to swoon over the rest!

PhantomMinuet April 14, 2009 at 4:03 PM  

And it really is a lovely picture. :-)

Beautiful shot. Love the red head...in blue...on green...against blue...in front of my favorite US city!
Thanks for that!
And good luck with job search!

Julie, your portraits have been absolutely stunning lately (they've always been beautiful) but recently they are really, really beautiful :-)

Kath April 15, 2009 at 10:55 AM  

Wow, your photography skills are growing leaps and bounds. I was out of work (by choice fortunately) for seven months a few years ago, I never understood how I had found time to go to work before. Busy busy. Better than sitting and feeling glum, though, right?

This is a GREAT portrait. Perfect!!!

La Pianista April 15, 2009 at 9:34 PM  

I am hit with a terrible bout of guilt.

It's been...eh, I'd say an *eon* since I last posted.

Hope everything is going great, TB! May your gorgeous stilettos and shutterbug heart take you far. ;)

A beautiful image of a beautiful couple! I was checking in to see if you had any photos of those (stupid) tea parties at City Hall. I'm surprised that so many right-wingers turned out in SF!
