Not Shy at All

Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 23 April 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

This is the friend of this lady. She,too, was a bit surprised by my request but was obliging. I must say that the Balinese people are very friendly. People along the street, not just shop keepers, would say hi. More on this later.
