The Rice Queen
We had made a stop to shoot some wonderful rice terrances in Flores Island, Indonesia when off to the left of me was this lady filtering through the freshly picked rice on a tarp. I took a look at her and smiled and she just started laughing. This was one of those times where I did nothing ahead of time to prime the scene other than a hopefully provide a simple smile. She had on some rice paste to protect her from the sun and perhaps, maybe, she felt funny with this on her face in front of me and my camera.
