Is nobody safe from the Gloucestershire Paparazzi

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 5 June 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Although it looks like this poor woman is the target of his lens, I've been assured that he was taking a picture of the house behind her !
Happy Silly Tuesday

Canon EOS 500D 1/200 second F/8.0 ISO 400 53 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
