Gold With A Sweet Silver Lining

Went into town and passed people caring for a person who'd tripped. Popped into supermarket later, shopped and walked on by past a manager caring for a frail, and bleeding, old lady- the one who'd tripped. I went on to my car but on an unthinking whim turned around on my heel, walked back up the stairs, tapped him on the shoulder and offered to take her home or to her GP.

His relief was palpable, as was her reticence. I walked her to the car, gently got her in, manhandled her shopping trolley into the boot and set phone to maps. She allowed me to walk her to door of her building and, very sensibly, not up to her first floor flat door, I mean I could have been an axe murderer.


Quite an adventure that the old lady had...lovely that you helped her, you deserved that piece of chocolate!

Wonderful capture and bokeh this does look a little like a Mona to me. Fav. Lovely to hear you helped the injured lady and got her home safe.

Great tale; you are quite noble. Hope you enjoyed the sweet as a justly deserved reward. And great light/bokeh in the background on this one.

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Thanks Jackie, my biggest aperture is 2.8 and having a bridge camera, no idea about the size of the lens. Maybe I am just too stupid ;-)

@ludwigsdiana hmmmmm I have a bridge camera too and it's not easy. Give this a try? Set to manual/ apperture priotity , widest apperture possible, no zoom at all. Move camera ( not lens) to focus on subject in foreground and have light shining on/from objects in background. Dappled light from leaves is good to start on. Enjoy.

@joysabin it just seemed right
@granagringa I'm not usually this impulsive
@wendyfrost oh thanks for the Mona compliment
@fbailey seemed right
@carole_sandford not any more
@4rky many thanks
@kwind my favourite thing Todo

@mittens thank you
@will_wooderson well @summerfield will find out next week!!
