soprano Danielle de Niese performs at the New York MetThis picture of soprano Danielle de Niese, performing at the New York Met, caught my eye; there's just something about it.  She's beautiful and talented, but there is other stuff going on here: confidence, intelligence, a point of view, ambition, maybe even arrogance.

Sometimes a photo feels like it gives insight into personality; can you really figure out what someone is like from a snapshot?  Who knows.  But I would like to meet Danielle, she seems ... interesting.
