Now, I reckon that's one of the art ones. The two girls previously was a snapshot; definitely.

One bite, and she'd have that big Canon lens hood down in one.

'Snapshot', an interesting word. It was coined by Sir John Herschel in 1860, 22 years after he came up with the word 'photography'. What it meant was that you no longer needed five minute exposures with the subject's head held in a brace, shutters could work with the speed of a pistol trigger. Aim, snap and you have the shot. Photography could move out into the real world. Don't decry the word, it's hugely important, and positive.

Didn't he also come up with sodium thiosulphate as fixer?
