Sometimes I Miss When I Was Good

Post by minniev »

As we rounded the corner near this group, I heard the girl on the right say to her companion, "Sometimes I miss when I was good". His answer, "But we're bad now." And her wistful, "yeah".

All suggestions and feedback appreciated.

One of those below the waist using the backscreen shots, since I was right in their faces.

Thanks Matt. The conversation made me like the image better than I would have otherwise.

I did not hear the quote, but do remember you asking me if I had. This is a good observation on your part ... listening and the capture. An excellent point of view, except for the pole obscuring some of the view. You must have taken this one while we were resting in the shade across the street from them. I didn't capture any from that angle, but did from a different POV. I noticed from your image and a couple of mine, there were a variety of individuals that came and gone in such a short period. This one was taken just after we had walked past them.

Lovely shot.

And you know, of course, that the two on the left are the females of the vampire trio. Without the Dark Lord, they seem better somehow.

I took this one right in front of them, but looking down at the backscreen instead of through the viewfinder.

I had no idea they were of the same !!! Yes, without Dark Lord they did appear to be better. Good observation Minnie.

I know I should be interested in the couple on the left, but somehow I'm drawn to the couple on the right and wonder if you've thought of cropping them to give them their own space? S-
