'Ka-ching' or.. nice legs!



This was one of those impulsive shots that my lens was drawn to like a water-divining rod to moisture :) Passing Westpac on the Terrace the differences between the two with-drawers were evident. She slim, assured, confident that her request for money would not be refused (nice legs too) he in his baggy track-pants looking a little perplexed.. they say you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, it's possible she was drawing out her last $5 and he was an under-dressed millionaire :) the bright red Westpac logo against the red and white background was the clincher, what do you think, would this scenario have caught your eye? Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

    I'm always drawn to color--the red was the first thing I noticed.

  4. Oh yes, this is my kind of shot. Serendipity. You did good! BTW, I forgot to mention that I was happy to hear that you guys got rid of the Aussie version of G. W. Bush, Tony Abbott. Again, I say, good job!

  10. Yes, this would also have attracted my lens. From your title I thought you would commenting on his legs until I read your comment. It is a strong image.

  12. Brilliant! Good eye with this one. I love the different stances and apparel of the two people. I also really like the symmetry. I doubt the woman is withdrawing her last $5…unless those are Jimmy Choo's on her feet. :) Hope all's well Down Under!

  15. Wonderful strong graphics. And you may be right - maybe she's blown all her money on those clothes and accessories.

  17. Great shot! The left part of this scene would have caught my eye first, but also the guy is in a funny pose...

  18. Good eye and timing to catch this situation !

  19. I like this! So simple and so nice style with the black/silver , white and red!

  20. Your shot would translate into a fantastic painting. It's the chap that really makes me smile. You can read all sorts of things into that photograph. Well done!

  21. Definitely Grace .. It would have caught my eye. The symmetry in the colour palette is delightfully coincidental. She is wearing a dar top and light skirt and he is wearing a light top ant dark trakkies. She is a power dresser and he is a la casual. Nice one Grace.

  22. I've never used one of these, so old school.

  26. A perfect photo opportunity, I wouldn't have thought of it! But I would have been drawn to the red too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Perfect, Grace. My kind of photo. (My kind of girl, too, now that you mention it.)

  28. Cute shot Grace and yes it definitely would have caught my eye too!

  29. great eye grace! we learned when we left san diego and moved to missouri that you absolutely cannot judge a book by it's cover...the farmer in his overalls was almost always worth more than the white collar man in his nice suit!

  30. Love the symmetry and the way it looks like he is wearing a crown!
