Bungee Girl

Posted by
Viewfinder (Bradenton, FL, United States) on 7 March 2008 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Saw this young lady working (while everybody else was playing) at the Cortez Seafood Festival. She was in charge of the bungee jumping concession (really it was a big rubber band thing, not a pure bungee jump from high up). No hat either, but behind her sunglasses and mildly bored expression lie her true dreams and aspirations.
