This lady kindly allowed us our first portraits of the morning. The early sun was dodging clouds and gave a lesson in the subtleties of illumination. My preference is for gentle side lighting, which shows textures to advantage. Compare such an effect to that of diffused lighting here. The railroad leads nicely to a vanishing point and the low angle brings her height to meet the treetops. Heroic posing, indeed.

Atlanta Street Fashion has an intern. Meet Ashley, a rising high school senior who lives in Northwestern metropolitan Atlanta and is a fan of this 'blog. A life long interest in the business of fashion is reflected in theme of her senior project. Yes, she is building a portfolio of real life photography and reached out to me for mentorship. For our first style safari we met in Marietta, the site of a vibrant town square and its artists' and farmers' market. After coffee with her mother at Cool Beans, we took to the streets. These are the first souvenirs of that morning.

A clever elision of the noun 'millennial' and the French pronoun elle, millennielle by Coco Bassey is a compendium of "fashion, travel, DIY projects, music and homemaking" says she. These tastes are informed by a worldliness born of living in Europe, North America and Africa. Thank you, Coco, for sharing the adventure.
