Near miss

The International market - York

This shot was nearly deleted. I had my finger on the delete button of the D2H, ready to consign the image to oblivion. I'd been concentrating on the two young ladies - yes, definitely one of the benefits of the job - and I'd missed the decisive moment of them concentrating on a potential purchase.

"Damn" i thought and probably muttered to myself as i looked at the screen but then i noticed the passer by to the extreme left.

The look on her face is hard to fathom. is it surprise? is it boredom? is she being insulted? You could interpret her facial expression in any number of ways and make a story to fit.
