Olan Mills ladies posing for the camera

As I was walking by, these two ladies, engaged in selling Olan Mills portraits, saw my camera and smiled. So, naturally, I pointed my camera at them. This is the result!

Olan Mills?

I love their smiles but hey, if I were her I'd shove my handbag further out of sight!

People buy portraits of strangers of a famous photograph? Do they hang them at home?

SRQ said...

Haha! I bet the last thing they expected was for someone to take their picture!

Better tell her to keep her eye on her purse.

Rob said...

Cool, a portrait of Olan Mills.

How much were they willing to pay for their pictures?

Lois said...

I'm sure they are not used to being the ones who are photographed!

Excellently turned tables!

Wonderful! It has the casual feeling of a Girl Scout cookie booth. Not usual in portrait salespeople I've encountered.
I hope they at least offered you a discount.

You're such a charmer, Jacob.
