John and Amy (#491) 12-24-13

As John and Amy walked my way, they were kidding with each other and laughing. So, I introduced myself and asked. They were a bit shy and reluctant, but John broke the ice and agreed. They were from St. Petersburg (`40 miles away) and were visiting Sarasota for the day. A Christmas parade was scheduled for the evening, but they would be home by then.

After getting a few images, Amy was a bit embarrassed and did not like the non-smiling pics. So in deference her, I got this shot. She was impressed at how good John's came out. They did not want my card, or to get copies of the images.

An hour later, we passed again. John smiled, and acknowledged me. Amy looked down and pretended to look at something in her hand. She never became totally comfortable with being photographed.
