Canon To Cannon

By lifesnapper  
Phew, it's Friday ! what a week, SO glad the weekend is here.
Oh, sorry, Hi everyone, hope you are all well.
This pic' is just a bit of fun really. While in Barcelona, we visited the highest point over looking the whole City, and also some nice views of the Sea. We found a spot with some rather large Spanish Cannons placed over looking the Sea, which once where used in defence no doubt. For the whole trip, I was with three other people, so very hard to stop and get good candid shots, ( have to be alone for that) but for a few moments, I wandered off on my own, and found this rather nice young Spanish girl, standing beside a cannon, and looking out to Sea. Now, I don't speak any Spanish, and she spoke very little English, But I did manage to get her to climb up onto the canon and pose for me. The only trouble was, I didn't know how to explain to her, that it would be best if she left her handbag with me! Short of taking hold of the strap and ending up with the hanbag wrapped around my head, I thought it best to leave it where it was, on her shoulder, and just make the most of the situation by ratling off a couple of shots. She then climbed down still with a lovely smile on her face, and went to her boy friend who had just come onto the scene------------------- whoooooooooops!!!
Oh well, i'm still alive, and i'm sure she still has her Boyfriend. And, of course, the handbag Smile

Have a great weekend everyone, all the best to all, and thanks for looking in.

You do live dangerously for your art... I agree that it's easier to get candids when you're alone though - unless you can pretend to be photographing your companions.
This is unusual for you, legs but no cleavage. I'm sure the gentlemen won't object to a bit of variety though.

Almost another 'hilarious scrape', as Father Ted would have said. The young person has a pleasant smile...........
Have a great weekend!

After a hard week at work - have no fear because itís Friday evening and Johnís weekend therapy is here. Itís the weekend again and time to have some fun. Super shot John - but must say after reading the sp - you do know how to live life dangerously.

Like the low taking angle here.It does enhace the little detail of these rather nice legs.I dont think too many folk will be looking at the bag.And it certainly looks a rather large cannon.Another pleasing one John.
