Two stallholders and a customer at Londonís Borough Market. These pictures are respectfully dedicated to that small but vocal group of epz members who like pretty girls. The beefcake comes tomorrow...
Iíll do anything to avoid using flash for candids, so no apologies for a bit of noise in these.
My computer is probably going back into hospital today (still freezing once or twice every day...) so Iíll be relying on using Billís laptop occasionally. Apologies in advance if I click and run on you over the next few days!
Thanks for looking,
Moira

particularly like the 1st one, I agree flash for candid's is a no,no, (flash is often the best way to ruin any shot IMO unless it's studio- press shots are different)

Gosh I'm first today.A super profile of a very pretty young lady............. At least I'm not too old to recognize that.
The focussing is spot on and the image tells the whole story.
Nice one Moira.

Three lovely bright & lively images Moira.
You have caught all of them really, really well.
Wonderful colours in all three, & such lovely facial expressions.
I'm not sure if the young man in no; 1 is eyeing up the young lady, or thinks that maybe he's going to get into " the big time " by you taking his pic.....
I so love the hairstyle of the lady in no; 3, although I can't make up my mind just exactly what it is, but it looks good on her.
Excellent start to the day, with these very happy images.
Hope your PC gets better soon.

A pretty face was never a drawback in an image Moira as we all know. A good set, No 3 for me red is the draw here and works every time.

All the very best, hope computer hell is over soon.

I don't think we are such a small group Moira? Speaking in my own defence.When I am out with my camera,I can spend all day looking at rust,neglect and decay.When I come home,it can be a breath of fresh air to see an attractive girl on my monitor screen.(that is after I see my wife of course,in the kitchen,bar-b-queing my tea!!) You have captured three very attractive girls here.But there is one important detail missing---------LEGS,LEGS,LEGS.
