Even though it was taken back in June 2012 I can clearly remember taking this picture. We were going with some friends to an antique car show on the grounds of Maryknoll in Ossining, NY but first we went to eat in a great Peruvian restaurant (I think it was Actuario) in Portchester, NY. There were tables outside, but we decided to eat indoors. As we were leaving I spotted this colorful woman sitting outside. A lot of things caught my attention: the bright colors (magentas, pinks, blues); the large hat; the big sunglasses; the dangling colorful earrings. She was accompanied by a rather cute, small white poodle adorned with ribbons that matched the color of the woman’s sweater. Quite a sight! I asked her if I could take some pictures and she agreed.
