Sketches from the Forgotten Coast: A Supermodel

Photography works in a mysterious ways. Some photographers are good at shooting naked ladies, others are good at shooting rusted nails. I do belong to the latter category, but as luck would have it, I had my chance to shoot a supermodel once.

I met her the next morning we arrived for our week long escape to the Forgotten Coast. I was sipping a cup of freshly brewed Ceylon tea and was flipping through a local newspaper on the spacious deck of the condo we have rented, when I felt that I was watched. I slowly turned my head. She was sitting on the railing, staring at me without a blink. 

"Oh, hello there," I said with a softer-then-velvet voice. She didn't even move a muscle. As a true Southern gentleman, I showered her with compliments, admiring her shiny emerald skin, her elegant tail, her beautiful eyes… I had no shortage for the "sweethearts", the "darlings", the "sweeties"…She was really enjoying my admiration, curving her body and turning her head, as to hear me better.

My tea was getting cold. I took a sip. When I looked  back, the rail was empty.

Next morning was the exact copy of this one, only this time I had my camera near the cup of tea.

Her eye is like a magnet. Like your short story, it draws you in and hooks you!

A very Happy Christmas Viktor!
vz-nostalgia: That's what I told her: "Your eyes are like a magnet, my dear, deep like an ocean. I'm afraid to drown." smile
Happy holidays to you too, Ms. Jose.

She is a beauty! Your picture of her is not too bad as well.

I am not surpised she flounced off on day 1..you indicate you preferred a sip of cold tea, which is a huge insult to a reptile, VZ.
vz-nostalgia: I should've known better, Ray! I'm not an expert in all things reptile, as yourself. But my knowledge of women's nature worked out well, for she returned for some more flattering next morning. smile
Beautiful story and a truly gorgeous photograph. Love the angle (in all senses), the super colour and crisp detail. Wonderful! (:o)
vz-nostalgia: Ms. Roz, you got me puzzled with the "angle in all senses". Can't think of any other sense to the angle you love. Please help. smile
I like lizards too and you seem to have captured some of it's personality.

vz-nostalgia: I hope so, Nig, as she was a real sweetie. I've never seen a blue lizard in my life.
Oh dear, dear Viktor. There is not a woman alive who can resist superfluous sweethearts, excessive darlings, and lavishly used sweeties, specially from an intemperate true Southern Gentleman, darling Viktor.

I certainly understand the look on her face and the green, sweetie. Precious, would you agree that she looks as though her blood sugar is a little high? And hon, I do believe her head is turned from the pain of her toothache.

Dearest, your story and your photograph speak volumes about the ladies' gentleman (southern, of course) that you are, sugar.
vz-nostalgia: smile
Amazing eye contact with another specie! From Earth? lol wink
vz-nostalgia: I'll ask her where she's from next time I travel to the Forgotten Coast, Ms. Suzanne. smile
