THE MAKING OF 'Greg #2':

The conversation was running hot with discussion and arguments about many things photographical and candid shots were very few and far between that morning when one of my mates gave me a nudge and said, "Why not get a shot of Greg?"
I did not even know he was there as my view was blocked and as making a candid of Mine Host is an extremely rare occurrence I quickly set the camera up, got into position and lined him up. In this instance he was deep in thought after receiving a telephone call. Natural light and my Canon did the rest.
Greg will get a copy of this as soon as I get the prints back.

A big Aussie G'DAY to you *LINDA* & * CARLA*!!

Welcome to the Crèma. The best caffeine oasis in town.
Thank you both big time for your stimulating and encouraging " the espression..." and "...Love the B/W." comments on my coffee flavoured candid caper.

Linda: We have a great time and it helps strengthen the bond between camera club members as well as being a good real time forum for all things photographic.

Carla: Yes, he is certainly mulling over the 'phone call he received.

He looks so familiar to me. I wonder if he was ever on TV for entrepreneurship? I watch those shows a lot.

Anyway Dennis, great candid image. Wonderful clear focus and terrific in B&W.
