In Passing

By lifesnapper  
Hi All.
So there I was, sat supping my third Efes, and studying the beach and sea, to make sure no one was in trouble and in need of a coast guard, when suddenly out of the corner of my eye, I spotted this lovely Lady about to walk past my table. Well, my glass was on the table and my camera in hand within seconds, and just managed to get a one shot take as she went passed and out of my vision.
Well you no it had to be done, and this is the result. Hope you like it.

Enjoy the rest of the week everyone, and thanks as always for looking, if only 'in passing.'

all the best to all,

John Smile

Very nicely isolated from the background bustle. A slight hint of vignetting? Very effective.

Reading the SP obviously a photographer who knows how to get his priorities right!! Sitting there at the table with the 3rd glass of Efes and one’s camera sitting alongside - what more could any candid photographer ask? Good shooting and a delightful candid here John and so pleased you were quick off the mark. Agree with Bill above, sometimes you’ve just gotta get a shot - and this is one of them. Well spotted and done.

Yes,it pays to be quick on the draw John.Never understood these spaghetti westerns, where you had to listen to a 10 minute session of music, before they got their flippin guns out of their holsters !!!
Mind you,with this victim here, I would keep my gun in my holster and tell her ''lets face the music and dance'' !!!
Nice one.
