Pulpit Posers

By SlowSong
He looked right fed up having to stand there posing in Canterbury Cathedral. The chap taking the pics kept getting the couple to smile and stand in other places and I think it was all getting a bit much for him. Grin

I agree with you, his facial expression shows how bored he is. A super candid shot.

He looks like he is going to punch someone on the nose....

A wonderful image so very captured and one full of one-liners and anecdotes.....

I just hate it when these plonkers come and pose in front of what you're about to photograph, without any consideration for other photographers - and take ages to get the shot. They even then swap places, so you've to wait all over again! Sad At least you've used the situation to your advantage here, Chris! Smile
