My Dunkin' Donuts Photo Studio

This is my friend Jessica.  She is a senior at Stonybrook, majoring in engineering and physics, with a minor in astronomy.  I guess it was about five years ago she and a friend came to the astronomy club and said they wanted to build a telescope and grind and polish a mirror as well.  I said I would mentor them, and we have been friends ever since. She is busy beyond imagining but from time to time we meet for coffee at a Dunkin' Donuts, and talk about astronomy and engineering and life.  I always have my small camera with me, and when she glanced down, and her hair fell forward, I quickly said "Don't move!"  I think this is a portrait unlike any I have ever taken.

Hi Ken- Love it! I like the translucent quality of the hair, as well as the blue-tinted highlights. Well done! -Dean

Thanks Dean. It is nice that I have a picture of a person for a change!
