Was wandering through the upper level lounge of Young and Jackson’s, when I spied these two at a window table, looking as though they were practising an interview … kept moving into the next room and feigned interest in the icon of Y&J’s famous (or infamous!) portrait of Chloe all the while planning an attempt at a sneaky candid … took a practice image of some furniture (below) and happy with the exposure, carefully crept around the drapes overhanging the doorway … snap! Not wanting to be discovered or kicked out for taking images in Y&J’s, left the building as quickly as nonchalance would allow ;o) … Image inspired by the candid of fellow bubbler Geof :o)

Young & Jacksons”, Melbourne, Australia

The Interview … thank you Faul, a great compliment :-))

Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    This is super!
    It looks like it would be a photo in a magazine with an article titled “The Interview”…
    Great shot- really professional looking!

  • Thank you very much Lacey :-))
    Was a bit anxious doing this shot because, I was expecting a hand on my shoulder any moment while setting up and told to shove off or, the blonde would see me – and well she might: easily within her peripheral vision! Thankfully she was concentrating on her friend, and not what was going on around her! ;-)
