Ja, waiting is the half life. Are we also on Monday in Droitwich?
Chris: This is Bath Philine: in the lobby of up-market Waitrose supermarket

I think you had a little collaboration there, Chris
Chris: I was just sneaky Lisl..
Are you sure they're not in Droitwich, Chris????
Chris: Occasionally it rains in Bath Ginnie

Looks like "The Bath Magazine" is very popular. Are these your personal shoppers? Judging by their brollies they have just travelled down from Droitwich.
Chris: Quite right: they have escaped the continuing torrents of both rain, Lightroom and tonemapping that emanate from that place

There is something about that red brolly that makes this sing - that and the lady on the right looks like she has seen the second coming!
Chris: She has indeed, she is experiencing a form of middle class retail ecstasy
Queueing up for the Waitrose Essentials

The lady on the right looks as if she has just seen someone drop their trousers
Chris: I prefer Mike's explanation..

The lady on the right seems to be in a state of shock after a busy day of shopping Tiff.
Chris: Indeed so Chad: her bill at Waitrose was far smaller than her social status permits
Laughter and shock at one of your jokes, Chris?
Chris: Or they could have just seen Bill Phillips's tone mapped pictures Pauline..
Oh, you charmer! Good shot.
Chris: You like it then Mary

I think you took this in 'Hiding' Mode.... great shot and I think they never noticed, I have seen you in 'action'... grin....
Chris: I was disguised as a post box at the time Astrid
Good shot, Chris, great expressions, ( is that a Charles Dickens book? ) smile
Chris: Err..almost
Love the expressions of both ladies, Chris. The one on the right looks as if she was taught the proper way for a well brought up girl to sit; straight back, knees together with hands on lap.
Chris: She has a formal stance Bev

Oh, Myrtle, there was this nice young man with a camera. He took our picture. I so hope ...
Chris: Well I hope they didn't see me Louis
Two completely different expressions, I'd love to know why.
Chris: Different personalities I expect Brian

The generation gap
Chris: Very good!
The casting bench? Interesting piccy.
Chris: Waiting for the rain to stop John
More like my way of doing retail therapy as I sit by the door at M & S.
Chris: You don't shop then Scotia
A poor broadband connection is not helping me today.
Chris: Something we all rely on
What a beautifully inappropriate hat!
Chris: Great isn't it!
just so natural Chris...
Chris: Yes they really are Ronky
