    A great street capture and a beautiful study of body language.

  • Patrick, thank you :-)))
    I had to be ultra sneaky here, as the lady had seen me with camera pointed in their general direction … had to wait a while for her son to ‘distract’ her and then, snap! ;-) … thank you again :-)))

    GREAT street photography shot!! LOVE the patterns on this!! This would be great in the group, “Shapes and Patterns.” At least I think that’s what it’s called!

  • Karen, thanks so much, glad you like this :-))
    Hadn’t thought to try this with the “Shapes and Patterns” group, thanks for the suggestion – may not be quite enough evident shapes and patterns to qualify, will give it a try though :-))
