For very good reason. Great catch!

Better catch.

My neighbor backing the car out of the driveway.
The art of the mundane?

Yes, catching something better than the obvious out of the mundane is an art in itself.

Well done!

Did you get the next shot in the sequence? The one where she tosses another pin in the air with her left leg (while the right leg is still elevated?)   ;)

They do everything bigger and better in la belle France - or am I thinking of Texas?

Personally, I'd keep well clear of a lady with big clubs.

Yeah, but it was out of focus. Did get a couple of others...

Also looked up her CV online... she was one of the junglers during the opening ceremony of the Albertville Winter Games... which was the first of the fully choreographed opening ceremonies, I remember being blown away watching it on TV. That was 1992, so she has been throwing and catching for some time.

Very nice abstract. Now line up all the neighbors, one at a time, into and out of that driveway.

Change of pace, across to the verandah of the Opéra, favourite place for break-dancers to do their thing. Normally their thing doesn't interest me much, but there was this young boy having a go at the end...

W. Eugene Smith with wider view?

I enjoy shallow dof and think it pretty much always (subject dependent, of course) adds quite a lot of drama to the photographs. It's one of the reasons that I love Feurer's work so much: he always gets right down to the important bits and eliminates the stuff that detracts from that.

Makes me salivate lust after Nikon's 200mm. Maybe if the apartment sells there will be realistic temptation anew.

Would he have focused on the fence, or the walker?

I'm thinking Saul again, for hiding the real subject through focus. Here's my contribution to the theme from yesterday:

As she has her ears on, she probably didn't hear you coming.

Another thread here made me think again of the impossible 2/200mm Nikkor.

Something that surprised me - to an extent - about Saul was his embracing of digital. On the other hand, I can understand that film got rather awkward - and expensive - if he was still thinking, at the time, about paying his light bills. I've seen images of him with a Panasonic G1, but as with William Klein and a Sony or Fuji - I forget which - I wonder if it's all to do with advertising. How cynical the industry makes one become. Even, perhaps, without cause. Perhaps Saul's rebirth came too late, but if not, then were I Leica, he'd have had a brand new camera in his hands, with all the glass he wanted.

During lunch today I went onto Goggle's Patrick Lichfield Imagenes list, and I remember he really did get a bum deal from some of the UK press corps. He did good fashion and calendar shoots. Maybe it's in the British psyche to try to knock those of better birth conditions than the norm. Yes, access is always a huge plus, but one shouldn't forget that the goods still need delivering; nothing gets you a second bite at any cherry if you drop a client into the deeper smellies.

In fact I focused on the pumpkin, expecting to have some vague café-business happening through the window. The exposure was off, I lowered the camera, twiddled some knobs and when I brought it back to my eye there was this women in the window. Click. I think she looked only at the moment I fired the shutter.
