Q: How do i nominate photo and member of the week ?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Sorry about the softness of the rushed shot, but I saw her, and all of her uniqueness, and HAD TO hurry to get my camera up, and somewhat focused, as she was moving by pretty fast.

I haven't seen anything like this since the Jimmy Hendrix days...and Halloween Parties...LOL.

The REAL funny thing was, after following her to TRY to get a decent shot, I saw her finish her Long Beach stroll opening the door to Mercedes Benz....go figure LOL!!

Hope you like my rush job!

    im not telling you anything you dont already know, but you never have to apologize for the way you take any photo. i like it, actually........and because it is so current, and we're in two wars, and the economy is in spiral melt-down, and there's an election coming up, it makes perfect sense to me that she would do her southern california health-and-wellness power walk and end up in a sporty mercedes! like, dddddddaaaaaahhhhh!

  • Ahmed Roberson

    Ahmed Roberson said (27 Oct 2008):

    Thank you so much for the detailed response Rhio9. I really do appreciate it, and I am glad that you feel that my "misses" don't need justification. I am really humbled that you can appreciate my work...even when I think I messed up....all of you.

  • Patricio Fontes

    Patricio Fontes (Deleted) said (2 Jul 2009):

    cool photo but I am taken aback by your "Laughing out Loud" about this person. Your attitude is arrogant. You stole this person's image, publicize it and then make fun of her -- a little humility while you use someone's identity to get props.

  • Ahmed Roberson

    Ahmed Roberson said (2 Jul 2009):

    Patrick please, there is NOTHING Arrogant about me at all....ask anyone here on JPG.
    I can LOL at this lady because I can appreciate her style...you should see my style.
    I find humor in those that are like myself...knowing that I am not the only one out here like that.
    I take no offense to your comment, but please Sir, do your research about me, and the photos I take. More importantly, you will see that I write descriptions about EVERY photo that I take here, and every photo taken of anyone has a sincere story attached to it, and none of it has a bit of Arrogance.
