Miss Vye

By ARJones
This is Miss Vye. She runs a small beachside hut selling fish, snacks and drinks in a small fishing village called Farquhars Beach on the south coast of Jamaica near Milk River.

A very pleasant and serene lady scratching a living in quite a deprived area. I hope I've captured that in her face.

Thanks for looking.

Fantastic shot and dof, the mono conversion is just right. You need to send her this pic. It gets my vote.

Thanks so much for for the comments.

Richard, I have actually revisited and given Miss Vye a colour copy of the shot - along with some 6x4's for the various children who wanted their photo's taken!

I'm trying to get a series together of shop/bar keepers but I think I'll struggle to get someone as photogenic as Miss Vye.
