Sore feet - his! by Ell-on-Wheels

Canon 50D, 50mm f1.8
Available light (December, Elizabeth Street, Melbourne)
Minor post-ed contrast/brightness adjust, trim

Heading back home from a walk with friends, spotted this couple ahead – got several sneaky images, even one of her happy face of delight … but the looks on the people’s faces at the sight of these two makes the image for me :-)

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

    A great moment caught Ell! How one could do much walking in heels like that is a mystery…

  • Thank you very much, Jordan :-))
    Ohhh, heels like that is kinda a rite of passage, something you do when young
    … then the clever one’s wise up pretty smartly, once the physio and chiro bills start rolling in ;-)))

    cool how the subject pops out for you – she’s the wacky one, he’s the big, strong and reliable one – good match (for now anyway).

  • Thank you Geoff :-))
    He carried her a good few blocks along Elizabeth Street, and didn’t pop her down until they’d crossed the road to Flinders Street Station!!! She was only little, but even 50kgs would have felt like 100 by the time he set her down ;-)))

    They do say to exercise carrying weights… good for cardiovascular…
    but this is slightly overdoing it…
    nice work Ell
    Cheers Lee

  • Lee, appols for late reply … thanks so much :-)))
    … not the sort of cardio I would wish for either ;-)

    Hehe! great spotting!

  • Haha, thanks, Berns :-))
    … don’t know what would have been funnier for ‘observers’ – these two, or me trotting along behind, attempting to get a half decent capture! :-D
