Neelum


This is the first complete stranger that I have ever approached to ask permission to take their picture. I hadn't planned on taking pictures for this project at the dinosaur exhibit since it was a family outing and I figured it would be all hands on deck corralling the children. The plan was to leave the camera in automatic mode and snap a few of the kids. However the exhibit was well organized and the children were completely engaged. I decided to seize the moment even though I didn't have my tripod which would make the low light conditions a challenge. I worked up the courage to ask a few of the guides to take their pictures. Neelum's name is so very unique that I just had to look it up. It means blue sapphire. A pretty name for a pretty girl don't you think?
