Flickr a Day 185: ‘The American’

Happy Fourth of July and celebration of what would become the United States some 239 years later. Caroline Castillo captured self-titled “The American” on Aug. 27, 2006, using Canon PowerShot S2 IS. Vitals: f/3.2, 1/60 sec, 6mm. EXIF does not record the ISO. Context for our Day taker should be obvious. I find the composition appealing, but the subject’s expression is the clincher. “This shot would have been a little corny had I not post-processed with a bit of an edge”, Catoline says. Eh, maybe.

She is a portrait photographer living in Delray Beach, Fla.—or so I hope. Caroline joined Flickr in August 2005, but she is inactive since December 2010. Her photo website remains silent for nearly as long. Where is she now?
