Receiving End

The shots were taken at a shop; the lady was attending me when she suddenly received a call. She fished out her mobile and I my camera. I focused on her, she was extremely beautiful and definitely any photographer’s delight. She knew I was focusing on her; she smiled consent.


I took about six shots when I suddenly sensed she was not happy with the news she was receiving. I stopped clicking and moved on, just praying that it wasn’t bad news for her.
