Fashion Focus Artist (With A Sense Of Humor)

I was photographed once
at a coffee shop—
completely unaware;

My head cast down
absorbed in the French latté
and unflinching conversation
of my biology text.

raveled in a multi-colored
woolen scarf and
newsboy hat

a visage barely recognizable, I,
aporetic that a photographer
would find my presence

so unobtrusively
worth capturing,

yawned and he flashed.

Reminds me of my photo taken at age 8 as I was looking out of the corner of my eyes to my friend in order to escape the painful flash - and how BAD I felt about that awful photo - NOBODY was ever captured like that - and my husband wants to know why I'm not interested in photography - there is something evil in it! Kind regards, Margaret.
Quite a stirring picture of one moment in time... both the photo and the descrption of its capture. Well done.
yawned and he flashed, the line fits, still not your best.........................
An excellent write Sus, I would agree with Anna's comment... you captured the beauty of being captured.......and Im sure the photo was perfect as well.......
