The lighting was interesting and the shadows more pronounced. Although I wasn’t really sure if the image in my viewfinder was going to transfer quite so well?
However, it didn’t look all that bad once I had returned home and edited it slightly? Well at least I thought so anyway.
I have seen this lady before on my travels through Chichester and she always strikes me as a very strong and independent individual? One who would take no-nonsense?
That walking cane though; the one which she vigorously strikes on the road ahead of her; seems almost superfluous to her needs? Indeed it’s more like a prop or even a fashion statement?
I only say this because she always walks in such a confident and robust manner. Unless of course it is like a placebo and allows her to feel more confident knowing she has it to hand?
I bet though that despite my assumptions; if she were a grandma then she would definitely be the sort who spoils her grandchildren rotten? One whose outward appearance masks a warm and a very gentle demeanour?
After all initial appearances can be very deceptive now can’t they?
I say this because in honesty; for one brief moment I had thought of this fine lady as reminding me of a modern day version ‘Wicked witch of the West’ perhaps heading towards her bicycle; that one with the bent handlebars and the baker’s basket placed at the rear; grimacing… “I’ll get you and your little dog too” followed by the obligatory sounds of maniacal laughter?
No offence intended of course! That was just me being brutally honest with you all as to how I had initially interpreted this capture!
