I finally managed to get out on a photo shoot for a few hours on Saturday.

I have to admit that it took me some time to convince myself to go and I'm now glad that I did.

I've also managed a few shots recently whilst out shopping with my wife. She went around clothes stores and I lurked around the general public with a compact camera! Smile

This one proved difficult to take as it's Saturday afternoon in Cardiff and busier than usual as Cardiff football club were hosts to Newcastle and the fans were everywhere.

Three attempts to get this one without others in it.

Mono version for me.

A great candid, very well worth the patience and stealth... The monochrome working better IMHO Ken.

I like the backing choir. And they are much more surreal in b&w.

Too much red in the colour version Ken, the mono version is excellent, he has an audience all day behind him.
