A Purple Martin posing. I swear, it posed. Normally, these swallows fly around and around and seldom land. It saw me, and it posed.
I was photographing the Baha’i Temple in Wilmette, IL when I saw this formal couple being photographed with a cell phone.
I saw this possibility if I were the photographer. I thought I would photograph them with almost the whole building in the background. I didn’t have my wide angle though, but this would have been sufficient.
Oh, and it turned out, the woman is half-Pinoy, half-African American. She asked me if I were Filipino and when I said yes, she told me her mom is Pinay while her dad is black. And they were preparing pancit and lumpia in her house as we were speaking. Yay!
