I’m afraid to admit the faces probably noticed the same thing I did. She’s wearing some fairly stringy underwear. ?
Haha, I’d like to say I hadn’t noticed that, but I had!
Very cool shot. That’s a lot of expressions. I don’t know which I like the most! 🙂
Thanks! Likewise, although sad to say they disappeared shortly after I took the photo…
As ever your patience and timing are amazing. Whenever I catch someone walking they look like they have abroken/twisted leg.
I’ve seen some of these drawings around Harajuku and they recall the 70s cartoon of Norm Saunders. Mind you, the ones I snapped were on grey utility poles and boxes. Nothing so splendid as that purest blue (#0000FF).
Surely thats a spare set of earbuds rather than netherwear 🙂
Thank you. Patience is something I’m still learning. Very much a work in progress. But when I think it’s something with potential, it seems silly not to wait at least a little while.
I think I know which ones you mean. There are quite a few similar styles actually. Not sure whether it’s the same artist or not, but either way they brighten up the streets and alleyways.
Haha, good call on the spare earbuds!
She is just still in the ‘grey zone’ and yet also in that stepping out moment.
The yellow beckons out of frame and nicely complements the ‘trademark’ stitching on the boots. It needs the yellow!
She was probably not listening to … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejaECAd3gaU
Mine squeaked due to a small air hole which gave them a comic touch,
Now there’s some new music for my collection. Definite echoes of Slowdive, Chapterhouse, Ride, Drop Nineteens and other shoegazers from the 90s.
Skip Skip Ben Ben – and easy name to remember. Thanks john.
Thank you; not forgetting Lee for the composition! Good listens ahead!
(For Ben Ben with less shoe gaze and nice Mondial – ‘Freckles’)
Cheers. Good call about the yellow. Hadn’t really picked up on that to be honest. Just a pity the distinct Dr Martens yellow isn’t a little more prominent.
My last pair made me squeak they hurt so much. Still do sometimes, which ironically makes them wholly unsuitable for walking…
an almost sublemonal yellow.
but perhaps good to encourage standing around for that decisive moment before squeaking off with a keeper!
Haha, it certainly worked out that way!
I have a pair of squeakers that are very loud in the supermarket my wife and I use. My method of avoiding too many mocking stares is to walk in lockstep with my better half so there’s doubt as to who has the offending footwear.
A problem shared is a problem halved!
