Stall style

By woolybill1
A young lady stallholder in York Christmas Market.
Reaction candids with the LB are not easy because it lacks both autofocus and the distance scale that between them make modern cameras so user-friendly. I find this image just acceptably un-soft Wink
From the informal mini-epz meet in York, November 24th.

"Mock" examinations begin today so I shall be off-line until late afternoon for the next week.

I did wonder at your early rise Bill, steady as you go this early hour can catch the unwary out.

This look almost normal, best be looking to your work in case people think you're losing that special touch.

the lens baby and the mono conversion really make this an eye catcher. Nice one Bill

Excellent work. I have her too but much more conventionally shot. Good luck with the mock torture.

Grand shot Bill and I very surprised you got away with this shot as the lady was quite startled when went into the changing room.

Still it was a informal meet.

A got a couple of shots of this lady, with that chap dressed like Sherlock Holmes alongside her. The funny thing is that on both images, though the couple were both on the same plane of focus, she's in focus and he isn't! Perhaps I should have exaggerated the blur and pretended I'd borrowed your Lensbaby! Wink A great candid capture, Bill, works well in mono Smile

Oliver Tudoras you are a fine and kind gentleman with perfect taste.

Good timing Bill, and well worth uploading. I guess it just had to be mono.
