Sherrill at Work

I recently returned home from spending a week with my sister in Eugene, Oregon. Here she is managing her department at Kiva, the grocery store where she works. Even on vacation, she goes in to make sure all is running properly. I wish we didn't live on opposite sides of the country.

I admire the composition -- the strong vertical of the figure and the convergence of the shelves on her. Good choices, nicely executed. Excellent portrait.

She doesn't seem to be aware of you. Nice perspective.

@Julie L. Brown, Photobirder: Appearances can be deceiving. After taking a few more shots, she told me to "quit it!" :-)

Wonderful shot of your sister at work! I love your comment to Julie above ... that's funny!

@RBL: Thanks for commenting. I should have written my response to Julie up in the description. :-)

I have the impression that little would slip her notice on those shelves . . nothing allowed out of place.

@Ronnie 2¢: So true!

Aahh, the health products section...good! Although I'm into natural rather than pills and potions, but still...excellent composition and, yes, she does look like you.
