Thanks Douglas and Bob.
As usual for me in such impromptu circumstances, I decided I'd like to take the woman's photo in the context of her surroundings. So I preset the old SLR for exposure, walked directly to where I liked the perspective and raised my camera as an indication of my intentions. When her expression showed that she was agreeable, I put the camera to my eye. While doing so, I noticed her reflection in the mirror, and moved slightly to incorporate it into the shot. Then I zoomed to frame, focused and made the exposure.
One or two quick shots, a smile of thanks, and off I went. Overall ET less than one minute.
