Brian, a nice story. When i saw the montage of all the pics together i did wonder how you managed to take not just one but loads of them. I also wondered if they were your relatives or family. The store manager was i imagine pleased with your picture
She could do a poster size in the window letting the customers see what is in store. Its a great montage!
Last year i went into a dept store, and i took pictures as i was riding up the escalator of mannequins looking over a balcony, as i got to the top of the escalators and stepped off them, i was asked to leave straight away (i had already got a shot by then) and immediately came back down the other escalators and tried to get a shot on the way back.
@ DP i also wondered if it was a quick and sneaky shot.
If i walk into a shop with my camera, even if i am not going to take pics, i am always aware of eyes following me, waiting for they chance for them to bar me.
