Default Heavyweight fight

While walking out on the pier this morning I spotted 3 men in an arguement. The man in the suit bought a camera from the man on the right and wanted to return it. The seller refused, saying the buyer had broken it. The seller's friend (straw hat) then intervened.

What followed was a shoving match while bystanders looked on.

G'day Walter

Hmmmm - you sure the seller was the 3rd fella - coz it seems from your PJ images that the oversize fella is the one making the arguements ...

Like the inclusion of spectators to make the story come alive

Yep, the seller had his expensive gear on a tripod and I suppose the friend was trying to protect him..and it.

In this instance a swift kick in the nuts is the only thing that would take that poppin fresh dough boy down. So what was the outcome? Did he get his camera returned? Did he actually break it? Who was right? Oh the horrors. Meanwhile stay tuned to Life is a Beach.

It was really strange to see a guy in a dark business suit and tie, with tassled shoes, walking on the pier. No, he didn't convince the seller to accept the camera back, after what seemed like a half hour of talking, arguing, shouting, etc.

Returning a Fuji HS10...
Looking at the last pic, you weren't the only one shooting the bout...!
I'm surprised they didn't start on you...
Great action shots...

Great PJ shots. This is why I am having a camera shop selling my 7D, T1i and 24-105L, so this doesn't happen to me. Bet the lawyers would love to get their hands on some to the photos taken of that action.
