Young lady nearest camera, was taking iphone images of her boyfriend, standing in front of the clocks at Flinders Street Station, and at one point, her and her friend were right beside me, to my left … hmmm, do I pick up camera to face at such close quarters, less than 50cms away?? Didn’t have the courage, and instead just watched the ‘show’ and smiled … then she directed her boyfriend to stand within frame in front of St.Pauls Cathedral … and I got my chance! :o)

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