I like the low angle - and her concentration - of #3 very much. After viewing the entire series I feel I want to chat with the young ladies, especially to ask the signficance of the hats (well that might be because I'm retired Navy, lol). Fascinating pics!


Thanks Linda !!! Low angle point of view has it's advantages and I'm leaning towards them more and more. Curiosity entered within us as well, but the hats will remain a mystery.

I have been waiting to see this series for TWO YEARS! I was with Dave as we spotted and followed these girls down the street and into Rouse's Grocery, and I knew of course that his would be better. Love the black and white (but not grungy) treatment, and the expressions you caught. Good sequencing too. 3, 4 & 5 are my favorites.

Thanks Minnie !!! Sorry it took so long to post these. I organize my files by camera and as you know, since these were taken with Sharon's camera, they were placed in a folder I hardly ever visit. I discovered others there as well to post. I do wish we would have engaged with this group. I have been curious to why they were dressed as they were, where were they going after shopping. We'll never know, but I will often wonder.

This is a masterful series and I can only imagine the conversation going on between the photographers. So much fun! S-

Thanks Steve !!! Actually, the conversation wasn't very long. There was so much activity surrounding us, which kept our focus on, what the next subject would be. Fun time, for sure.

I remember the conversation. We spotted them on Royal St and began to follow. They made a beeline to Rouse's supermarket and we pulled up at the door, looked at each other, and one of us (I think it was me), said "Let's do it", and in we went. To complicate things, we were already engaged with a rather interesting but difficult character in a jester suit, and we had to ditch him to follow the Sailor Hats. We left our spouses with the Jester.

Another take on the girls. I tried various processing, but never was satisfied. Like Dave, I never posted them anywhere before.

(Yeah that's Dave in the second shot)

Your memory is much better than mine Minnie !!! I thought the character in the jester suit was after the sailor girls. Glad you posted some of your images. They show a different perspective. I especially like the last one. I can just imagine the face on the Jester while he is observing the sailor hat girl and you had to sneak #2 in as if I'm standing in line for produce. Lots of fun and I look forward to doing it again. Here is one thats been hidden and almost forgotten.

No payback was intended, Minnie. My personal preference is ...... I like the photo of you two and think it fits into the street photo genre very well.
