Alright, this one goes out to all the men. What can I say ladies, boys will be boys! :) Now, be honest…who among us has ever used this tactic of wearing sunglasses to sneak a peek at the opposite sex?? Allow me to be the first to raise my hand in a shameless confirmation. hehe
Well…it would seem, much to the chagrin of his mother, that this young fella has picked up on the idea rather early in life.
To be truthful, it was simply a stroke of luck to catch this shot as it would “appear.” I was only trying capture some people coming in and out of the market when I snapped this picture, not even realizing this precise moment which materialized until later that day when reviewing the memory card. Even with all of the planning in the world, sometimes you just get lucky.
Thanks for taking a "look."

Hello Jason, The girl looks similar to my roommate from Sevilla. She was black and complained that got sunburn, that was for me a bit strange (I didn't get sunburn).
Funny scene and nice note :).

Good morning Jason,
A graet moment taken, and a nicely assumed a tale. Age probably not making any difference nowadays.
The best shots are when you not intending or premeditating about.
Fine street scene, face expression always interesting to see.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Yeah! Like we all really believe this is an avant-garde shot of people going about their daily market shopping, and you just happened to click the shutter as this beauty came into shot, or is it just your love of the colour blue that you keep telling me. (Grinning uncontrollably now). This image has paparazzi all over it! I now know why some men wear sunglasses even here in a green and pleasant land where the sun makes few appearances. Pictorially stirring emotions and controversy as usual big guy - bring it on!
Enjoy the weekend, no doubt you are out and about in Feeenix, wearing sunglasses. :-))))))))
Little Boy Blue.

Le jeune sait faire. Il sait ou regarder et admirer les plus belle courbes. Bien sur, il la suivra dans la traversée de la rue et sa mère sera fière de constater qu'il aime les filles. Quand à toi, tu avais le meilleur point de vue pour la voir venir.

You naughty boy you, you really want us to believe that this shot was accidentally ...
But I admit, who wouldn't have a sneak look here.
On a more serious note, the market in Nice is indeed a wonderful place, not only for great people watching but also for unlimited photo opportunities from the many colorful goods on display.
have a great weekend

Shooting straight into a crowd you never know exactly what you'll get. Sometimes people are all walking the wrong directions, everybody disturbing the view in one way or another. At other times you're lucky and you get something funny and smart like this. The only thing I'm wondering is if you were aiming at the nice lady or the little boy, or just shooting at anything that moved.

this is a lovely street scene with great human/psychological interest. The first thing I noticed was how gracefully the lady is walking even without high heels. I like very much your composition in a narrow vertical frame that has retained the essence of the scene and rendered it so important as to raise a discussion:) I also love the sunshine and the colours (the blue of the lady's top is fantastic). There's a great sense of vibrant movement, the lady seems to be leading a disorderly parade and it's so amusing to see the two marble ladies watching the scene and your effort from the background:) A wonderful "lucky" shot, congratulations and thank you!
One of these days I'll show you my ultimate lucky shot (so far), too.
All the best, have a great weekend,
