I passed these two having a chat in the city centre today, and when I passed again 20 minutes later they were still chatting away. I wonder what they were talking about?

"do you think that woman with the camera is going to give us our fifteen minutes of fame?"
"she walked past us 20 minutes ago, I've been eyeing her over the top of my glasses"
"well I'd better get my grandson to check her out"

"Did ye hear the one about the Rabbi, the Buddhist and the Priest?"

Seriously. Twenty minutes? That's only warming up time before an event at the Womens International Gossip Oylimpics!!!

It's now 10.58pm and they are probably still there.

Thanks for your comments - actuallly Gerald you might be right, I was standing well back, using my zoom lens, but I think they did spot me. It isn't easy slipping anything past a nun.

I ran a similar exercise in Antigua Guatemala DP where I invented a story about an encounter in the park. Other people came up with wonderful stories too:

P.S. Please, make sure you allow non-blogger the ability to comment. There are many of us who are using wordpress, pixelpost or something else to do our photoblogging, thus you are losing many commenters by ONLY allowing people with a blogger accout to leave feedback.

antigua daily photo - thanks for this, I'd no idea I wasn't allowing casual visitors to post comments. I've had a look through my settings and I think I've adjusted everything so that anyone can leave a comment....

I love this photo...it's exactly the kind of situation that after I walk past I always think 'I should have taken a photo of that'!
