The Pipes the Pipes!

By stevesloan
Three stories here!
That the young lady was fascinated by the the pipes but defened by them was one, i like the eye contact between the lass and the piper.
The piper, who by the way was excellent and is an internationally known piper, is our local bank manager, I think these days he prefers the bagpipes!
And finally, this was a another photoshoot, this time, commissioned. I was taking photographs at our local community sports day when the wife of a shop owner in town came up to me saying " Steve please help us my husband is opening his new shop and the photographer has just cancelled, please cover it for us- its today." A little different from the shoot with Azteria but I found myself posing dignitaries etc and the nervousness that was there before, had gone.

I agree with your comments about the eye contact, that really makes the image stand out!
We were in Edinburgh recently for the Tattoo which we thoroughly enjoyed and the pipes provided a wonderfully haunting sound. This photograph just brought it all back. Thank you.

Glad you're being called upon to do photoshoots.
Usually you've to do them for nothing though!
Yes the image tells it's own story and is amusing!
Glad the bank manager's got a sideline!
