Chichester town centre and I had just finished enjoying my weekly fix of vegetable pasty and coffee; whilst of course busily checking out the many different characters who were out and about at the shops.
As I was disposing of my empty coffee carton and serviette into the receptacle outside the cafe I happened to look up ahead of me to observed these two women who at first were walking briskly and chatting to one another; suddenly stop dead in their tracks! Then the lady who you can see wearing these rather fetching stripy pants in a very serious manner answered her mobile phone.
Walking on a little further in their general direction I was thinking about the composition of the shot and the fact that as both women were kind of similar in their choice of clothing; It might be interesting to take a photograph?
At the same time however, and quite fortunately for me; this elderly woman was by this time almost alongside the pair herself taking a coy little glance over at the ‘tie-die’ jeans worn by the friend of this lady on her phone.
Then obviously feeling at a loose end she quickly retrieves her own mobile phone from the bag around her shoulder; and commences busily texting. Unaware of this elderly ladies attention.
The perfect opportunity I thought to myself snapping the shutter of my camera as I reached point which I felt was close enough to my subjects?
I must be honest with you though; the expression in the ladies eyes behind her large sunglasses was somewhat daunting. In fact I was unsure if it was due to my presence or to do with the caller she was addressing?
I am aware that there’s always the possibility I might be challenged whilst snapping such situations; however, fortunately for me on this particular occasion; no dialogue was evident; and so I felt quite pleased to have managed to capture this image published above for my blog entry this evening?
“PHEW…I could have been seeing stars instead!”
Maybe she was shooting bullets at you from her eyes. The sunglasses protected you
Now there’s a thought! Thanks for stopping by my friend.
