On this one, we are aware of her. On the other she is aware of us.

I like this one better, a peaceful happiness.

I am happy to read that you think that. You know, what is the point of a snapshot if the subject is prepaired for the picture? As you said in another comment, it is this esence of humanity that makes some pictures beautiful.

I had to post this one for two reason, because I like it and because it makes you understand the second one. Here she was not waiting for the picture or, as you put it, we are aware of her. In the other, she is aware of us but was not expecting a second shot; she is not smiling for the camera. She smiles because she realized that I just took a picture of her. That is what makes the other picture also special to me... I am not so sure if everybody understands this two images as snapshots and not just posed portraits.

David, thank you for taking the time to look at my PF and leave so many comments behind. Alejandro

Hola Alejandro.

Both pictures are great moments or documents. It is clear that she was not posing on either, but the one where she is looking to the side makes you wonder more, what is it thet she is looking at. It is as if you captured the little girl in her.

I guess I have been away from your portfolio for too long, because I had not seen these two photos of Maritza before. Your photographs of her always make me smile (not an easy thing to do), and it is as David says...here we see the little girl.


This may be a snapshot, but it is also a lovely and telling photograph.
