This is going to cost her a bag of crisps...
Chris: At least - poor little sod realising he's got a lifetime of waiting for females ahead of him...
What an amusing capture, you were right on the ball with the shutter here. Fast forward ten , twenty, thirty years and I suspect not much would have changed.
Chris: Human nature does not change Ayush - only technology
Gawd! ... Big sisters are so so boring.

'The Decisive Moment' ... superb
Chris: Obliged to you. I took this yesterday and was so pleased with it I thought I would exhibit it to the world ASAP

Priceless, Chris
Chris: When I got home, put my specs on and squinted at this image I thought my day had not been spent in vain Lisl. Not that it had been anyway...we had community road clearing in the morning

Hurry up I want to get home to the play station
Chris: That just about sums it up Vintage
Cracking picture Chris. The perfect moment.
Ironic that he has an H&M bag as they are in trouble re sourcing cotton from Uzbekistan who use child labour....probably about his age
Chris: Then you have added a layer of irony that I in my ignorance did not recognise

Is he already learning to be Menkind, Chris??? My son would come home from school and say "Patience is a virtue, striven for by many but achieved by few!"
Chris: We always say "patience is a virtue, possess it if you can. It's seldom found in women, but never in a man."

Did you supervise the road cleaning (just kidding)
Chris: Thank you Astrid. I guess if you take enough pictures then sooner or later one comes right...

A nice study of people doing what they do best - Shopping.
Chris: It's what we're born to do Chad: you can forget all that hunting & gathering malarkey
Sorry, CHRIS! The pills haven't kicked in yet!
Chris: Don't worry Frank...we all do this
Love this Chris. You are putting imaginations to work this morning.
Chris: I think he would rather be doing somethng else than Christmas shopping with his sister Mary...
Priceless expression Chris - ref your comment to Mick ref Lightroom, I'd wholehearted recommend it - the latest version (4) has awesome tonality control!
Chris: Righto Fred - I think I'm going to have to get it then!

Hhehehe!! Poor little lad. His expression almost matches that of the cat thing to his left.
Chris: Astrid pointed that out Alan: I must admit I never saw it myself...
The look on that lads face, you couldn't have timed it better.
Chris: Sheer luck Brian
