So I was getting my car serviced and I had a bit of spare time to go shopping so I checked out this vintage shop which I've been to before called 'wisteria lane' which is straight across the road. It's a cool shop with items from all over the world and bits and pieces and very antique. Wisteria lane

So I bought some props for my photography work, and am very excited about using them in the future. I asked Amara The owner and her mum if they would kindly pose for a photo competition for me on the beautiful table which was already set with teacups and the like. I just told them to have a conversation with each other and to which they actually did such a marvellous job and even had me in fits of laughter with the funny things that they were talking about. I get the feeling that they do seem like great friends, mother and daughter, I don't think no one would really notice the difference, so a big thanks goes out to them for sure.

I also have to apologise for the quality of the photo, it's quite grainy I know, and the girls hand is slight OOF, the lighting was not the best inside the shop,& therefore the iso was quite high but I didn't want to stop while i I was shooting to adjust the camera because they were doing me a favour in the first place.

Thanks for the comments.

One of my top picks for sure and it was their expressions and naturalness that got me. What a wonderful visit they seem to be having. Congrats, Anita.

Congrats Anita! I think the grain and movement of the hand adds to the "candid" feel of the image.

Makes me want to sit down next to them and be part of their light-hearted conversation AND get a handmade scone (I visited their facbook site!)
Such a lovely scene and I'm glad this ended up in front of me! Congrats, Anita!
