Girl in the seat in front

Sometimes, you never quite know what's going to come out of a P&S when you hit the button. I was bored on a flight and thought I'd see if a "stealth" shot of a pretty girl I could just see through the seat would work. Thanks to the vagaries of automatic metering and focus, a high-key, form-based image came up that wasn't anything I had visualied. Now, however, I had the idea for what to do therefore the 20-odd goes to get something usable of course had to follow! Going digital makes this kind of thing *way* cheaper and more practical than film ever did, but the biggest difference of course is the instant feedback on any given picture to help accelerate the creative process.
