Abuela

This is another one shot on the gone but not forgotten Olympus E-P2.  I was buying coffee in the Mercado Central which is pretty much a locals only place and this lady was buying her supply as well.  She saw I had the camera and asked me to take a picture of her.  So I obliged her and this is the end result.  At the time I only had the 17mm and the 14-42 kit lens.  I don’t do zoom lenses so the 17mm was on the camera.  Sadly, low light performer isn’t what I would call the 17mm 2.8.  In addition the back light of the sun behind her messed with the cameras light meter so it read it wrong and considering I was shooting in full auto at the time (who reads manuals?!) the image is less than perfect.   With all that going on I had to crop Big Daddy out of the frame since he was standing to her left and the 17mm being a wide lens put him into the picture as well.

  1. Her picture is nice. She has a very pleasant smile. She probably thougth you were someone that might show the world her picture. I like it. I like the picture.

    1. I don’t know about all that. She just wanted her picture taken and I was the only gringo around that could understand her since I was the designated translator for coffee purchases. Only reason I was really there.
