Portraits, any camera, any color, any subject

Shortly after I bought my first professional grade camera, I began to think I would like to be a people photographer, especially if they were attractive women. I worked in a department store where there were a lot of temps working their way through college. This was captured with a Canon A-1 and a 135mm lens just before sunset at a company sponsored amusement park outing. I wish I could remember more, but at that time I was also close to the end of my 20-year long addiction to drugs (the photo was made in the fall of 1983 and I got sober in the spring of 85).

 
I recently sold off a couple of camera bodies and two lenses to get the old cash flow back in shape after pre-ordering an X Pro3. One body and one lenses I absolutely couldn't consider selling was my aging but still totally functioning R-D1s and a 7a 35mm f2 m-mount. A combination that seems to work well together.
