The place I picked just so happened to be where this lady came that day to show someone her very fine dress. I could not learn if she was a bride to be or involved in a theatrical group or whatever, since neither of our language skills allowed for that. Maybe since I had a tripod, flash, a new looking camera in a large new carry case, she thought the bar owner ( or her fiance ?) had hired a photographer. Heaven only knows and I didn't stop to wonder why she didn't mind moving to various locations in the bar for different poses that I would demonstrate for her. I probably spent 45 minutes or so and no else was in the bar to question what I was there for...... I never did get a beer. That was the miracle. A Marine in a BC Street bar with no beer !
