Ahhh well, it happens, eventually! ;o))

Not 100% sure this lady knew the camera was pointed directly at her (perhaps with the relatively tiny 50mm she might have thought I was shooting something else in her general direction?) but she was looking straight at me when this shot was taken! ;o)

Have been to St.Pauls Cathedral a few times now, but not quite this early in the day before … the light, directly overhead at the time, was utterly amazing in it’s difference to late afternoon!! :o))

Canon 50D, 50mm f1.8
Available light (late December, noon)
Straight from camera, no post-ed

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

    great shot Ell, she is looking at you alright…what happened after the shot?

  • Ahhh yes she is Shane, shame on me, not invisible enough! ;o)
    The lady turned her face away from me in the next shot I took, could have uploaded that image but this one was more truthful of what really happened :o) … a few minutes later, she moved from this pew

    Nice one, Ell. She has an almost ghostly presence…. Like you were taking a photo of an empty pew and yet when you looked at the picture later, she was there!!

  • Thanks so much Vince :-D
    Yes, almost a ghostly appearance … the noon-day light was creating some spectacular ‘views’ and shadows for sure!! :o)))

    Great Ell, yes it does happen. I am not how sure people are being photographed in church! Brave of you! Well done!

  • Thank you Jeff :o))
    Well, I’ll never know/can’t be sure if she knew I was taking her photo because I used the relatively tiny 50mm … she’d have known for sure though if I’d used a telephoto ;o) She sat there a while though, with eyes closed, so am guessing the 50mm ‘fooled’ her ;o)

    Great shot Ell. You had to be caught at some stage I guess. Happy New Year!

  • Thanks so much Jordan :o)
    Well, she definitely looked my way when I got this shot, but still not 100% sure she was aware the subsequent image was being taken of her … she sat there a while afterwards, with eyes closed, so if she knew for sure she would have told me off! ;o))
    Happy New Year to you too my friend!! :o)))

    Lovely capture. She doesn’t look that unhappy to be “shot”…

  • Agreed Narelle :o))
    I think she’d definitely have told me off otherwise ;o)
    Thanks so much :o))
