Borough Girls

By mrswoolybill
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,

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.

All the very best

Love all three of them oh mistress of the candid. Superb work and if I was put up against a wall I would pick No1 cos of the hand movement such a woman thing and the use of the availbale light.

Ho hum, 9 male votes, 2 female, why am I not surprised... Never mind, I'm uploading the fellas tomorrow.
I'm glad Dave noticed V1's hands, I was rather taken with them.
Thanks everyone and have a good week.

No1 there is just so much in this one the hand gestures the facial expession, andthe two asian ladies checking thier shots, full of human interest. Also noticed all three are at the sweet counter is this another female trait.

I seem to have the same nature as Louis - I could have told you about the tartes in #3, but never what hairstyle the young lady wears. Well, nothing to add to that,
Lovely, colourful, appetizing images Moira,

These are all fabulous take such wonderful candids. Love 3 for the definition and the colour , 2 for the expression on the girl's face and 1 beacuase she just looks relaxed enough to stand and lean against the counter. Brilliant.

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.

I hate flash too...noise has gotten a bad rep. It used to be very artsy in photography. This is an interesting set, candids as only you do.

Excellent set of candids and appreciative of the subjects and like the way that hads tell the story in each shot. #3 for me, I like the wry smile and think that either you've been spotted or she's particularly pleased with her purchase of a paper bag Smile

Great candids. I prefer #3 for catching the moment of 'handover'. Oh, and yes, aren't we all (men) suckers for those pretty girls Smile
