Wow thanks so much everyone. So glad this works - I do love to experiment with new things and I've not done many candids apart from the latest trip to Paris 8-D .. so yes, Sus, you're right! And yes, it's Prufrock. (It does look like MD, doesn't it..)

Thanks so much everyone. It was a good opportunity to try candids on that trip. Which is all very well, but without releases I don't have a hope in doing anything with 'em .. next step I guess is talking to them afterwards .. *gulp*

Smashing! The thumbnail didn't do it justice. The text and the pose really work here.

I'm hoping to get to Paris in June, I see I'm going to have to go walkabout with my 'stealth' camera.

An excellent shot. Those two out of focus heads in the background pull it together. Everything you look at in this says something.

The best I have seen from you but then I an bias towards social documentary or whatever the label is these days. I used to do lots of this work but alas it has all got screwed up with restrictions.
With hindsight I bet you wish you had gone for a chat.

Thanks so much everyone. I must admit I had some fun, curled up in my little corner outside the cafe and people watching. Got a good few candids.

Yes Ken I do wish I'd gone over and introduced myself and got talking and then whipped out the release! hehe (Must remember to start carrying some around with me).

Such a talent no more tears now, for me, this is more expressive than the wine glass shot. Introspective thought is hard to shoot here in Blackpool, people are so touchy, this is early morning coffee, she is so beautifully french.
Cant wait for more.
Cheers for now.
