Photographer's Note

Colorature (noun): 1. runs, trills, and other florid decorations in vocal music. 2. a lyric soprano of high range who specializes in such music.

This is very much a "nothing special" photo, just a snap-shot of a surprisingly good singer I heard in a busy shopping-street in Leiden. Neither she nor her songs probably fit the definition of colorature, but the word gave me a suitable title that refers to music and colours.

I have no idea who this singer is. She was not collecting money so she was probably hired to attract customers to the boutique behind her. She was singing karaoke style to pre-recorded backing music and sounded quite similar to the British super star Adele. Maybe she is well known to Dutch members of TE.

Updated information: Rob tells me her name is Lottie Mae Jones, a singer-songwriter and "plus size model" from the city of Nijmegen. Thank you Rob.

This is one of those photos I would not consider converting to B&W. It is also, at least for the time being, my last photo from the Netherlands. From now on I plan to spend some time in my own city.

Here is a larger version.
