Engrossed with texting, thankfully he didn’t notice a camera almost get poked in his face, as I walked past … not something I would normally do, get so close to someone and snap on the move, but was encouraged by Chris Curnow to give it a try … I did, but only this once! ;o)

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

    a real ’ Ell as warrior ’ shot.

  • Hehe, thank you Geof ;o)
    A style of candid I’m going need a lot more bravery for though ;o)
    Tis one thing to sit still and become ‘invisible’, tis a whole nuther ballgame taking close-up images of people (and getting in their space!) while on the move! :-o

    Like this very much. You must have been close!!! Colour looks good too.

  • Thank you Rhoufi :o))
    Had to lift it quite a bit, didn’t have the right exposure, original quite dark :o/
    Happy post-ed didn’t destroy his skin colour, which was quite well-tanned
    Was about half a meter? Amazed the 50mm had time to focus as I walked past! ;o)

    have to work up some extra courage first ;o)

    THIS would make an awesome sunglasses ad…
    And he’s definitely Italian cause he’s texting his mistress while his wife’s not 10 feet away buying shoes.
    Awesome candid!!!

  • LOL!!!! Wicked comment, BB! ;o)))
    Hadn’t considered the potential of this for advertising :o)
    Thanks so much, have been getting some surprising supportive comments
    for this, yours included – a good bolster for the courage, to give it another try :o)

    I think if he saw this photo he’d be pretty happy. Amazing capture given the circumstances, Ell.

  • I’d like to hope so … Vince, thank you so much :o))
