Snapped while at my fave cafe recently, grabbing a bite to eat before trudging off to work … good looking elder lady, that I tried numerously to capture without getting sprung – she was just a few feet away to my left …
With her husband, to her left also reading a newspaper – this was the only snap I dared, while she attempted to discuss an article she’d found, with her hubby who was barely listening – he was more interested in his own paper, a classic “Yes dear …” moment if ever I saw it ;-))

… the fateful Monday, following Once Upon a Walk

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

    could you please delete my comment, Ell, it belongs to the shot of the accompanying man who has his own paper. I like this one very much too.

  • Hehehe, done :-) … sort of ;-)))

  • “Two traits I admire in another man, a really good head of hair like this person’s, and the ability to continue reading uninterrupted, and getting away with it, by simply saying “Yes Dear”. (A brave catch, Ell).”
