Fringe frolics 5

By mikbee
I have always had the opinion that you should never judge a book by its cover,
but in her case,I doubt very much that she is indeed the Fringe Virgin !!
V2--I suppose I am judging the book by its cover here.She was outside the
Sherrif Courthouse and by her ''conservative'' clothes I would assume she does
work in the Legal Services.But then again,perhaps she is one of the accused
phoning a taxi for a quick getaway !!

Good patter to accompany these two shots of ladies in slightly different attire........what a contrast though.......well spotted chance to portray the different scenes during the Fringe, Mick.
Still hoping to get through.

Some day one of your poor photographic victims is going to find your portfolio and call around to have a word.
One of my dearest wishes would be that I be there to see that.

2 super captures Mick, no rust on these, are you sure you didn't manoeuvre your model into position in V1,

V1 adds a whole new meaning to the term 'Golden Girl'. V2, who knows, but in both cases, beautifully captured.

GrinGrinGreat set,Bet you had a look to see if there was a Rusty ring among those on her B---s in V1.
I would love to see her in V2 walking with those heels.
What is the Fringe Mick,not heard about it here in Wales.

Two very contrasting ladies in these well observed candids. I could speculate which one is most likely to be a virgin.

Two brilliant shots Mick, such a difference in attire, just goes to show not everyone is involved in the fringe SmileSmile But then again who knows V2 my do the superman thing and rush into a phone box, (that is if she can find one Smile ) and turn into another belly dancer of what ever SmileSmileTongueTongueSmileSmile

Two great shots

2 great candids Mick. Each very different but very appealing in their own right. Wouldn't be leaving my bag open on the ground - even if it is outside the courthouse Tongue. Moira

A fine pair indeed, Mick.
How long have you been taking lessons from Lifesnapper?
And when will he start uploading photographs of rusty padlocks?
I ask questions only because I do not know the answers.

Once I made the mistake of wearing my Botticelli tie to school, the one depicting the Master's Birth of Venus - you know the one, with the goddess rising fully unclothed and coy, in a cute fifteenth-century way, from an upturned sea-shell.
Anyway, towards the end of a lesson with a class of 14-year-olds a sweet lassie in the front row ventured to ask me,
"Please Mr Wooldridge, is that the Virgin Mary?"
Quick as a flash the Geordie Jack-the-Lad sitting beside her blurted out, "Ye stupid b*gger, she canna be a vorgin - she's got nae claes on!"

I rest my case. . . . whatever it is.

I'm afraid it was the Virgin sign that I saw first...
I remember when our daughter lived in Hemel Hempstead and the Virgin store closed down - word went around, 'It's official - there are no virgins left in Hemel...'

I do like the contrasts in fashion Mick and I do realize you photographed V for her smile and that you looked at her for 10 minutes or so to get the angle right. I would imagine there was a much shorter time span before pressing the button for 2.

You are a law unto yourself Mick, it is so difficult for me to judge the merits of these as they are both so good. I'm sure if Lifesnapper was with you he'd have obtained the phone number of the female lawyer in case he ever ended up getting in lumber when snapping ladies candidly and being hauled before the magistrates court, and having to face the long arm of the law!WinkGrin

Nicely captured -- seeing her in front of the sign. Will you be seeking her out again when her attire starts to rust?
