Stereotypes are alive & well in Florida
Are they real or is this a Duane Hanson sculpture?

If it weren’t for the condensation on the water bottle, I’d say that Monroe & Janet Newhart were definitely Duane Art.
What an incredible shot, Oops … give us some background … did they notice you? Did you talk with them? Where was this? Pure chance or did you stalk them for a bit? Did you see other photogs around?
“The Newharts of Akron just embarked from their cruise ship to take in the sights. How happy they are to fulfill a lifetime dream and go on their ‘Dream Cruise’ … a winter visit and celebration of their 53rd wedding anniversary.”
A great piece of American Photo Art … Still can’t get over the detailed match in their outfits and personas.

Yes, I did stalk them bigtime, took probably 30 pics before I got a good one. I kept darting ahead and turning around to shoot them. She never noticed me, he might have once or twice. I shoot from hip and always act like I’m puzzling over the settings on my camera, so most people can’t tell that I’m taking their pic. But as soon as I saw them I knew I couldn’t quit until I got a good one. 🙂

I love this too, it’s a marvelous portrait. I have a whole different take on such sights now than I once did, this is very Carmel and Big Sur too with some slight variations, and I look at this and think how lucky I am to be here all the time, and here in front of me, as Richard advises, a couple in a dream come true visit to paradise.
It’s lovely, great job, oops. I believe they’re smiling back at you for appreciating them and documenting their experience.

It really is a great privilege to reside in a place so special that others flock to see it. How lucky we both are!

Don’t worry, Bruce, you have special permission to wear your shirt like that when you arrive for your Spring visit. 😀

My Florida friends would probably disown me!
