The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

South Indian? As in the country of India, or as in Native Americans?

From their appearance I'd guess the country, but Lake Oswego is an American Indian name.

(Either way, that girl is cute!) :)

South Indian as in India. Oswego, OR was named after Oswego, NY. The Lake portion was added in the 1950's when Lake Grove and Oswego merged. There is a lake in Lake Oswego as well.
