A couple in Adidas track suits


When I took this photograph of a couple of young people dressed in bright red Adidas track suits, caring sky blue Adidas shopping bag I wasn’t sure if they genuinely liked the brand so much or was it a publicity stunt.

I have noticed them from a proverbial “mile away”. It was hard not to see them with all the vivid red clothing. They crossed the road and as they approached me I took a couple of photographs. The knew they were generating attention and seemed to love it.

When they were really close to me I hear them talking. They were Italian tourists, enjoying their holiday in Sydney.



I have noticed an interesting light situation across the road from where I stood. I was hoping someone would walk straight into that light. I did not have to wait long. The girl with large, black butique bag walked into this scene just seconds later. Capturing her with her foot in the air was however pure luck.
