Jacob's Ladder?


Not Jacob's ladder. I photographed this young lady at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. As I recall she was looking for a particular product for a customer. When she looked around and saw me, it appeared she was angry, but then broke into a big smile and said she wished I had let her put on her makeup before I took her picture!

From the looks of it, it seems to be a good deal sturdier and steadier than more conventional ladders.

She looks startled! Glad you got a smile!

Surprise, you're my photo of the day. :) Is that when she smiled?

Can't be afraid of heights to work there! I'm not much of a shopper at all, but BB&B is one store I don't mind.

That's one of Murphy's Laws...you can be surrounded with every possible size and choice but the only one that will do is somewhere way, way up approaching the ceiling, or hidden back behind and under half the store's inventory. The smiling clerk no doubt knows that. It probably keeps her employed.

You photographed a woman without her makeup... shame on you. :-)

Caught unaware, she certainly was gracious!

I'm glad she gave you a smile after the shock of having her photo taken.

Glad you told us she wasn't upset with you. By the look on her face, I expected to hear she raced down her ladder and confronted you.

Lovely candid capture!
