This couple were so immersed in their magazines that they didn't even notice me!

I arrived at Southampton Airport rather early this afternoon to meet my friends Mary and Jim from their flight so I decided to sit in the airport’s coffee shop and do a little people watching while I waited. I’d brought my camera and nifty-fifty lens along so when I saw people who interested me I tried a little surreptitious photography, using the live view function to focus without having to lift the camera to my eyes. Unfortunately my 22 year old lens’s autofocus system is rather buzzy so I had to choose my moment so as not to give away what I was trying to do!

lgnelson Love the "character lines" in these faces. You're so sneaky, Helen!

lookagain Wow, you have really learned how to be stealthy enough to get some great perspective while shooting these candids! #1 - looks like you were shooting from down on the floor....fantastic catch, Helen!

SheriJ Good for you to be able to photograph people in public! Heck I don't even take shots of wildlife if anyone else is around or watching. Great shots! I really like the older gentlemen conversing and siping tea or coffee or whatever. I only drink water or Mtn. Dew so I am not hip to what people drink. Super shots!

josy63 Excellent photos Helen...
Your eye and your small, furtive camera made a very pleasant work!

Annbramwell The two older gentlemen, look like politicians to me, probably plotting the next coup...
