The gift of the gab


... mmm ... I see ...
yes ... that would be upsetting ...
How did you feel about her then?
... oooh ...
What did you say in response? ... oops ...
What did she say to that?
... red handed? ...
You did what? ...
... Really ...

She looks as though she doesn't believe a word he's saying and he looks as if he's trying too hard . . . ;-)

Lois said...

I agree that she looks a little skeptical! Nice shot Julie.

does this bloke know he has spinach between his teeth?

Jo said...

She's taking it all with a pinch of salt! Wonderful shot, Julie !

Either that boy is not telling the truth or he's in serious need of a rest room. The legs don't lie. This is a tack-sharp distillation of the difference between men and women. Excellent.
As for me, still in a fierce amount of pain. You, my dear friend, may take extraordinary photographs of hands...perhaps even knees...but this knee would challenge even your amazing skills...it looks like it's been dipped in mustard and split pea soup and prune juice. It is NOT pretty.

Here is a study in Body Language. He is trying hard to persuade but is not on the level. He is looking just above her, unable to quite look her in the eye. His fingers may not be crossed but his ankles are. And the lady with the red purse? She is not buying one word of it. Great picture Julie.

James said...

Great capture of the moment. Her expression is priceless.

She certainly looks unconvinced about what this bloke is telling her.

This "..trust me, I'm a doctor!" line isn't convincing her.

Mirela said...

:-D Hilarious catch! He looks like he's BS-ing and thankfully she isn't buying any of it! :-)))

Jilly said...

Ha! Too funny. The lady looks most unimpressed.

This is such a great capture! You can almost see the "thought bubble" above her head. And if he doesn't look like he's shoveling a load of bull, I don't know who does. Thanks for the big smile! Kathy

Piyush said...

Great candid shot. The lady seems to be puzzled. Looks like the man is weaving some crazy story ;)

Ann said...

Great picture, what an exercise in body language. Wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him, and neither would she by the look of it.

Woody said...

Her expression says, "I don't think so"

Julie - sorry I have not left notes in so long. Life is spread too thin. This picture stopped me in my tracks, a stunning double portrait. Beautiful color and light. It's something you might see in an art museum exhibit of contemporary photography. Superb work.

Julie this is an awesome shot. They are such caricatures you'd swear they were acting! So this is fantastic from the point of catching such a candid moment plus beautifully photographed as well.

Congratulations for the photo ...

diane said...

The reds make this shot so interesting besides the well captured body language. He's explaining the weird text message she just received from him. Copy cat Tiger.

Hahaha! You made me chuckle, Julie!
