An ice coffee break in a not so nice back alley.

Very cool and great timing. I like the look she is giving you! 🙂

Thanks! Yeah, me too. Pressed the shutter at just the right time. She smiled straight after, but I much prefer this look.

Really? That’s the only option? I would NOT want to have my break there!

I’d like to think not, but I have seen other people there from what is presumably the same kitchen…

This is great. The colors are so perfect and I love the story that she smiled right after.

Thank you. Yeah, very happy the way the colours came out. A smile is something I get quite often to be honest, but I much prefer the look of surprise or confusion that comes before it.

Lovely contrast photograph. The clean whites, the grubby alley. The startled face, the knowledge of a subsequent smile.
Her expression suggests she was thinking “Panic! Private Eye? Health Inspector? Debt Collector? This phone’s owner? Ex-boyfriend? Ah, he must be a Hostess Bar talent scout. Quick, flash him a bright smile 🙂 Oh, he’s going. Back to skewering chicken bits I guess.”

Thanks. Very happy the way it came out, especially as it was taken at the end of a 15km or so walk that had offered up little in the way of photo opportunities. This was just before I went for my train home, so it made the effort in the heat very worthwhile.
Haha, I would love to know what she thought. It could have been any of those, or a whole host of others. More than likely though it was probably along the lines of, “Who on earth is he, and what the bloody hell is he doing creeping down here…?”
