'WOWza ... Momma Mia'

Post by davechinn »

Okay, this street image was an almost accident. This was taken at 1940s Day at Union Terminal. I was observing the gentleman dressed as a mechanic of some sort. He immediately reminded me of William Bendix from the 1950's TV show "Life of Riley". He was having a joyful conversation with this lady and two others that were off to the side. I kept observing them and just as I was about to snap the shutter is when his expression and view was in my view. Accidental timing !!! Sooo, I had only one choice in my mind for a title .... 'WOWza ... Momma Mia' Thoughts? :o

That is indeed one of those priceless moments. The woman and her expression, the man and his vision line - what a combo. Even just by herself, she'd be a gem, but with him there doing what he's doing, that's one of those memorables that make us go back again and again for street photography. Well caught, perfectly processed.

Thanks Minnie, a split second later and the whole accidental shot would have been missed.

Thanks Piet. I'm not even sure she knew what was going on and for that matter, I'm not convinced that what is shown is actually a reality. It just may have been a timing capture that presented a false expression so to speak. It all happened so fast.
