Lady with the umbrella
Lady with the umbrella
It was raining and I watched her from my office window and couldn't resist my temptation to capture her movements... I wanted to see her face...wished that she would look up but she never did.... Still wonder what she was like??!!!

    That was me under that umbrella SJ !!! Only kidding - but it *has* been heavily raining ALL DAY in Brisbane :-(
Very depressing but your gorgeous capture has cheered me up.

I really admire minimalists - excellent image - simple and effective! I wish I could do this, but my character won't let me - I got to fill all the space.

Somehow my comment did not show, so here I am again...I like the mystery of this and the sepia tone ...Great composition as always. I think it has been raining almost everywhere today !

Watching ladies from office window? I'm sure you're THE BOSS in your office!!
The texture of the road, the gait of the lady, the shadow falling ahead and the B/W effect really adds mystry to the picture!! Who's she? Donna? Madonna?

Fantastic capture, Sanjay!!! Simply fantastic....

Excellent image Sanjay. Love the sense of mystery of not being able to see her face. Now each viewer can come up with their own story. Why was she there, where was she going, did she know she was being watched, etc. That's what I love about your images . . . so many possibilities. Great lighting and composition on this. Think we may see it again.
