the usual superlatives apply here, Antonio.

But I'd like to make special mention of #5. Any time I see a shot with this particular rare attribute, I smile. The thing I see in this shot I never tire of looking at. It seems lately that I don't even see it as often in real life (let alone photographs) as I once did, and it's a real shame.

It's the moment when a smile "breaks out". A real, genuine happy moment. I most often spot it in the corners of the eyes. That's usually the tell between a "smile for the camera" smile and the "real deal" that says someone is about to laugh or simply caught in one of those fleeting moments where the facial muscles do that little bit of magic.

All the photos are great, but I wish they all had that quality of #5 that I love so much.

Keep up the great work.

She was really tickled about getting her picture taken. Asking if I could photograph her brought out that smile and I quickly fired a couple of shots. Lovely girl.

Thanks everybody for you very kind comments. More shots from this outing will come later.

Cheers,

Antonio

Wonderful shots

For me - I'd need to research & meet the Graffiti artist in 2 - document his/her work & tell the story
