    Great bw work Rhoufi! I pick the boots on the top shelf. Like the off white ones that lace up. :-)

  • Our happy little shopper’s got her eye on something lower down – my guess is they’re black ;—) Thanks Cathy; something I took on Friday walking around in the rain in the city.

    Oh my I am in heaven.. shoes, shoes and more shoes.. I went in to a shop today, they had to call security when I refused to leave at closing time.. LOL.. kidding but I am like a kid in a candy store with my shoes..:) LOVE THIS!!

  • Thank you Angela. Ah! Women and shoe stores – easy target for street photographers (sorry for the stereotype – but how often do you see men gazing into shoe shops??). Just to the right of the frame there were three photographers with tripods snapping the sunset between the high-rise towers, and there’s me on the other side of the street snapping them and the window-shoe-shopper. I reckon I got the best shots (albeit a tad blurred at f2.4 & 1/20 sec hand held, LOL.

    True true, wish this was for sale. I know the perfect person to send this to…

  • I can make it for sale if you want – I would be flattered.

    Perfect, I just need it in card format. It’s for my friend’s birthday :)

  • WeeOw, this is exciting. I’ll do it now. Thank you Angela :—))

    That means I would have sold two things in one week. Do you think I should offer more things for sale?

    Yes, I think all your fine art should be for sale.. why not allow more people to share your talents :) Thank you again. I know she will love it!

  • Thanks Angela, you have convinced me. Cheers.

    Never enough shoes.
    What? You have a problem with selling things?! Just grit your teeth and take it for a compliment so you won’t feel too much like a nasty capitalist! :)

  • I’m getting used to it Tiz, but I’ve been left-of-centre for along time, all I need is to look at a different way, and compliment would be nice.

    SO glad Ange convinced you to offer this ‘for sale’ my friend!
    Seriously good candid! Fave for me! :-))
    But will have to pull you up on that stereotype! Not all women are drawn to shoe shops, Rhoufi! ;-))

  • I knew I’d cop it if I said that. I bow my head in shame – how are you, Ell. Where ya been. I got out for a bit in Friday night (dinner for my birthday, woo woo) and managed to squeeze of a couple to ward off the withdrawl symptoms. Feeling better now, I am.

  • Ah, merci Magali. Vous avez visité ma galerie si longtemps et j’apprécie tous vos commentaires longs, réfléchis. “all that for who??”. Pour les hommes, peut-être, mais peut-être pas, pour eux mieux. Bonne nuit, Magali, c’est tard.á bientôt, Rhoufi

    LOL!! So you knew what you were saying then ;-)

    Belated: Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you! :-)))

    Still ‘here’ I am, just can’t remember what happened to the week passed! :-(

  • I can rib you lot sometimes can’t I? LOL. It was a crazy week wasn’t it. Thanks for birthday greeting, but I don’t want to count anymore. These shots were pure luck, Ell. I forgot to switch the focus back to auto, so the only shots that worked just happened to be the right distance away. I picked it up after about 20 photos – this was a lucky one.
