I bought my new Fujifilm Finepix s9500 this weekend! I went out to practice using it and captured these two gentlemen chatting whilst selling plants in a country market.

They asked why I was taking photos. When I told them I was interested in photography the fellow on the right pulled a ricoh out of his pocket (you can see it weighing down his jacket) and the other fellow chatted with me for around 20m minutes about photography and the wonders of his new Fujifilm camera. Funnily enough we had both begun with a Sony Mavica many moons ago!

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!

Hehe, that guy on the left really looks like he's thinking, "Why are you taking a pictuer of us? Maybe he's one of us."

Nice shot here! My first digital camera was a Sony Mavica too! I loved the way that camera felt in your hand.

Nice shot. I'm glad to hear the grandpa on the left pulled out a camera, rather than a shotgun. The look on his face says it could go either way...

Great experssion on the guy on the left. The B&W helps set the picture.

you were able to capture their facial expression and the B&W gave the photo more character/drama.

thank you for commenting on "tunnel vision". I looked at your photographs and liked them, I'll be back for more. :)
