Compact Candid

By KarenFB
I was sat in the car waiting for hubby to return from the Accountant, when I looked to the side and saw the young lady sat on a park bench reading. The double decker bus pulled up to the bus stop and I saw a photo opportunity!

I am in a little side road, looking up over a bank towards the main road. I used the compact which I always carry. I quite like the image, the leaves on the Horse Chestnut and the backlit girl caught my eye!

I quite like the way I've captured eye contact with the guys on the side of the bus! Wink

I love candids and this one is excellent with fabulous light. I wish I had the nerves to pull out a camera and aim at people.

The guys do seem to be leering at you in a sinister way. I'd be scared, if I were you!! Smile

I like this image a lot. The tranquility of the girl contrasts nicely with the busy signage, & the even busier, leafy foreground. She makes a vision of calm in the midst of madness.

Very well seen. & mucho kudos for being prepared. They do say a good photographer always has a camera with them. Smile

An excellent everyday scene, well seen and captured. The comic actor Simon Pegg who is featured on the side of the bus hails from Brockworth in Gloucester, only a few short miles from where I live
