These three beautiful purveyors of hand-crafted creations were happy to be mask free for this Paul Goldfinger photograph.  I said, “OK girls take a deep breast.”  The joke is mine; the smiles are theirs.   1/8/21 ©

I tried to photograph this threesome who were selling hand-crafted jewelry at the Outlets Farmers Market on Friday. It was the first day this season, so there was a great deal of enthusiasm.  These lovely young ladies weren’t feeling the groove posing for a photo with the masks on, so they asked.

It seemed safe enough with them distanced from all the customers and wearing masks all along.  When they took off their masks they were busting out all over—big smiles erupted, and you can see how much was being missed under those masks.

From now on I will try to ask my street photography subjects to briefly unmask.  After all, a photo only takes 1/250th of a second.  So I took one exposure, the smiles lingered for a few moments, and then the masking resumed.

A throwback to the 1950’s—even the name: Tropicana. Ft. Myers. Paul Goldfinger © Feb 2018.


Editor’s note:  The color scheme of the 1950’s was recreated by Francis Ford Coppola, 1970’s, for the Godfather movies, which were set in the ’40’s and ’50’s.  He used  special Technicolor film to provide authenticity when filming scenes in  Little Italy, Havana, Sicily and suburban America.

SOUNDTRACK:  This photo reminds me of Miami, and when I think Miami, I think Cuba and mambo.   From the movie Mambo Kings, here is Antonio Banderas with “Beautiful Maria of My Soul.”
