Kerrowdown Candid Fail
Posted By: Kerrowdown, 08-05-2014, 07:14 AM

There I was drinking a takeaway coffee, just minding my own business and being a generally well behaved Kerrowdown when...

You know when you being watched, well this young Italian lady was trying to bag a candid Kerrowdown shot.

I just picked up "Lady Luck" and fired off two, as you can see she knew she'd been caught.

I think she was smitten but too shy to approach you, and wanted to have a picture to remember you by.

That is a brilliant & funny shot especially knowing the context. You can consider that a "Carlos Hathcock" shot.

Hardly, I'm about three times her age.

Unless of course it was the wild Highlander she was trying to capture.

I must admit I had to Google him as I was not familiar, quite some man.

Thank you TinaS, I never know if your there or not as you seldom comment, so it makes it even more special when you do.

The camera was moved off axis to me, but it was just the one eye peeping out under the hat that made this image for me.

Yes, the eye gave it that special touch. Good timing and cute picture.

And thank you. I am slightly shy with people I don't know, so usually when I am online I spend more time lurking. I'm working on it... Lol

Aye, but you and I are on first name terms, don't you go concerning yourself about all the other folk that might be reading this thread.

I've looked at that picture a couple of times and it just makes me smile. What a great capture.
