Scramble & Hide - The Man with the Purposeful Stride! by BettinaSchwarz

Scramble & Hide - The Man with the Purposeful Stride! by 

taken whilst down at the Southbank today … some “lovely” rain ensured that we sought shelter and a hot beverage!!
… and yes, sometimes one just has to sit tight & be patient – the world unfolds and tells her own stories in her own good time ;)

Canon EOS450D
Canon 28-135mm lens
Focal length:135 mm
Exposure:1/320 at f/5.6

I’m in love with life and have found photography to be a richly rewarding medium within which to capture precious and fleeting moments and feelings. Because I know from first hand experience that time is fleeting and moments pass, I make the most of every situation and open myself to the richness of every experience. I hope that this is expressed in the images I create and share :) Visit me at

    Bettina this is fab. Somehow I’ve never got my camera with me when this kind of thing happens – well done you!

  • yeah … funny how that goes … I’ve often kicked myself for not having cam handy when “stuff happens” … on this particular occasion I’d just commented to my friend, asking what the chances were of some cool image developign before our eyes as we sat drinking our coffee … so I took the camera out on the ready … you know … just in case … delighted I chose to do just that ;)
    Glad you like the shot :))
