    • They turned out very candid and relaxed Debbie, despite being aware of having their photo taken. You must have charmed them πŸ™‚ Great gallery!

      • You’ve got a great eye Paula. I just had a walk through of all of the other submissions to this challenge and 9 times out of 10, the one that you picked to display was my favorite of the post. Was such a treat to ‘meet’ so many great photographers through this challenge (as well as see some wonderful images from old friends). I’ll be back. Thanks again.

  5. My worst subject in all the world, Paula- I groaned when I saw the subject πŸ™‚ Contemplating has a lovely feel to it and the other two are so clear and sharp. It’s not your normal choice of subject either, Paula, but you’ve made a superb job of it. πŸ™‚ It wouldn’t be a challenge if it wasn’t challenging, would it? Keep smiling!


    • πŸ˜€ (No, not my favourite subject at all :D), but in 10 days I’ll have more street portraits in B&W that I actually like πŸ˜€ Thank you for coming here this morning with your warm smile. Have a good day, Jo.

  11. Great job Paula, considering street photography isn’t quite your genre! Love the first shot titles contemplation.


  12. Non saprei quale scegliere…
    Voto tutte e tre: ognuna di loro e’ speciale!

    • When you took these, was it from chest level or hip level? I can’t teach myself to do that.My problem is that I have to have a camera glued to my eye and shoot and then everybody notices me :/


      • actually it was with a tilt screen camera (small sony RX100 2) from the belly level ;-), I look at the tilted screen all the time, (not once glancing at people), pretend that I am fiddling with the camera. (with Nikon I also have to have it glued to my eye)

    • If you stick around, you will see some in B&W really soon. I think you still don’t know me well. I displayed a thumbnail of your linked post, but I should really play by the rules and from now on link to fresh posts made for the challenge.


      • Sorry, I saw “street photography” and got excited. πŸ™‚

        Stick around? No, I’ll be leaving soon, but you knew that would happen. πŸ™‚
