I'm SURE it was the colors that made you take that shot :P

I don't think it's a silly shot at all, Steve...

The moral of this story is buried indeep subliminal advertising.

Statistically proven, the more you xerox your umm... "bumper" the less celulite you will have. And as an added built in bonus, frequent usage will produce a deep golden tan. (note model on the left after 10,000 applications, model on the right after 2,000 applications).

You wouldn't believe the stealth tactics I had to employ to get this shotso as not toappear a freneticpervert at workbeforea very large crowd :G

Steve, yeah I can imagine....:D

I've once (or twice... or more times...) been in situations like you were in, just REALLY wanting to get a cool / funny or particularly "photographable moment" but realising that people could think I'm a sick pervert or got some twisted agenda behind it.....

And I've actually developed a half decent ability to guess (via my point and shoot camera) and zoom fairly accurately at waist level (not using the screen / viewfinder) or from being seated at lap level.... and caught some "beauties".

Maybe an idea for a future "photo challenge of the week"??? :P

Hahaha! Sometimes, a photo really just dosen't have to be technically great. The subject does it all for me :) Nice, fun shot!

I can not add something useful... just keep posting that great "sporty" stuff Steve! :)

absolutely phenominal shot, steve!

one question, though...

where does the paper go in those things?

and how about the toner??

I suppose you could always blame my company for using cheeky advertising.

I think this could be a great advertisment shot for Xerox. I imagine that even if they tried to replicate the same candid type shot, it would look staged. Even putting the obvious aside, I really think this is a great candid shot.

Thanks Syd - I do hope you're not just saying that so as not to offend me :D

Candid it certainly was - from under my dirty raincoat and peering through a balaclava and sunglasses to judge the angle, shuffling alongintemperatures of 27C. But I don't think anybody noticed anything odd going on :G

Thanks everybody for the positivereception - glad I could brighten your day. (still like the colours).
