Sex or Chocolates

What is their body language saying? This couple were standing still on Princes Street for a good while and I sensed something was amiss.

Pictured in the background is the shop front of Ann Summers. The byline in the window reads “Sex or Chocolates”

    That is a GREAT catch! Their body language says a lot. If you asked me, my guess is that she has just told him that she would prefer the chocolates ;)

    Brilliant. The fantasy and the reality of relating.

    Nice street shot, looks like he’s got himself into trouble, some quick thinking needed.

    Thanks for the comments! When I was in town yesterday I despaired of getting any good shots because it was overcast and dull but I have 3 or 4 that are good enough to publish.
    Yesterday was also the first time in a long time I decided to shoot in Jpeg instead of RAW and I don’t think the end results suffered too much for it. I had to use a high ISO because of prevailing light conditions.
    Shooting Jpegs is more economical on disk space too and I didn’t mind shooting in burst mode which definitely helps in street photography!

    Nice timing with the two girls seeing the shop front. Can’t we have both sex and chocolate? :)

    That guy looks like he is in real trouble
    ( or will be when he found the words he
    is just looking for..).
