It's 8am. Downtown LA. Working women all over the streets are rushing off to work, dressed and ready for the day.
Please excuse the slight softness. it was a drive by shooting.
in front of a bank or a church? oh, well they seem to be the same these days. great shot...you are on a roll grrrl!
23 May 2010 5:05am
well done........a little bit dangerous but good work.....bye bye
23 May 2010 5:16am
Couldn't help notice.. the heels were so high and she was rushing off with that.. tough!
a nice street shot!
23 May 2010 5:35am
@Jhon: I'm not sure if she was just getting off of work, or on her way. And I'm not so sure what her profession is, but it requires high heels and small purses. :)
classical bettina. i'm sure she's a barista very late for work at some local coffee shop.
23 May 2010 5:42am
@Seraphine: Haha. The best frapuccino in town.
She was very beautifully dressed :)
I like the dynamism of the photo, very well catche movement.
23 May 2010 5:45am
Wow, the girl is a looker for sure. The building is really interesting; it makes me wonder what the rest looks like!
23 May 2010 5:47am
Classic,perhaps,but what a Talent,Bettina.................EXCELLENT !!
23 May 2010 6:11am
Wow! Great motion! I would die if I had to walk with those ones!
23 May 2010 6:16am
Tu as de joli modèle ! Bon dimanche
23 May 2010 6:17am
A beautiful silhouette in the movement, the businesswomen are very chic and sexy in LA...
23 May 2010 6:35am
Good job on this drive-by shooting...hope YOU weren't driving !
I am so done with wearing heels like this anymore....
but, therefore, I love to look at brave women like this who still do it !!!
23 May 2010 7:11am
Love her movement, like an animal perched up (a bird ?), super between those 2 superb doors, and i can't help hearing her heels of this elegant lady with short dress, long legs... and heels, so strongly. If you allow me to put the link here, it sure reminds me of my own sensation while shooting this.
23 May 2010 7:14am
@k@: How funny. Absolutely reminds me, too! The French version. More elegant. :)
she's a drive-by killer
23 May 2010 7:43am
yes yes yes i love it !!! peace !
23 May 2010 7:44am
A magnificent motion resonance in our minds. I close my eyes and I keep going ... with a rhythmic movement invading the space of your image! Very good ... he speaks to me! Congratulations Bettina!
23 May 2010 7:51am
Great capture ! You're definitely a mutli-tasking woman ;) Have a nice day Bettina !
23 May 2010 7:52am
@Tamara: Haha. You're right. Multi-tasking again.
dangerous heals. very 'bond villain'.
23 May 2010 8:18am
She wastes no time and she goes a good step, it is true that she has beautiful long legs, a real gazelle. Splendid shot. Good day.
23 May 2010 8:21am
wow just splendid
23 May 2010 8:40am
mhm, can't imagine what this woman's job can bee. she really doesn't look like a shop girl, rather a shopping girl ;-) great picture anyway, very l.a.
23 May 2010 8:53am
@trilliana: Shopping girl is probably right. :)
picture with lot of energy ! :):)
she seems an strange animal !:):)
23 May 2010 9:40am
Very nice street shot! and beautiful legs too ;)
I love it !
23 May 2010 10:17am
LOL! " Working Woman"... I don't think it has the same meaning here in NZ as in the USA... lol! Here the "working woman" mostly work at night... ;)
Great shot! I like the motion... seems as if she is in a rush.
23 May 2010 10:26am
@✿ Anina ✿: Well, yes, it was so early in the morning, she probably just go off her shift.
Love the movement.. And certainly these awasome girl and her beautiful legs are totaly ready for a day of work... :)
23 May 2010 11:25am
@Christian: What more do you need. Heels and a purse, you're ready to go. :)
Superbe image très dynamique, elle me fait penser à un grand échassier perchée ainsi sur ces talons aiguilles!:)
23 May 2010 11:26am
I love to see this energetic , young girl . Wish to see her crossed legs in some office, but seems to me she is going to stand on these high heels all long day :)
Super capture Bettine. Love this motion . Very often these car shots are so cool :))

Love your "drive-bys", Bettina. Great capture of this woman on her way in a hurry.

23 May 2010 4:23pm
@The Mouse: Lucky she's got insurance now.
Ohh wow..what a cool shot! Sex in the city?..ask Oprah..or Dr.Phil:))
(glad I am not standing in her shoes)
23 May 2010 4:45pm
Wow, what incredible legs... As Thea i immediatly think to the serie "sex in the city"... :-)
23 May 2010 5:35pm
Great drive-by eye! Hard to believe the woman didn't tumble with that stride, in those heels.
23 May 2010 6:08pm
A little black dress and a smart brown handbag. What else does a modern girl need?
23 May 2010 6:20pm
amazing shot , very good framing and compo , excellent movement
23 May 2010 6:22pm
A lady with a mission! Power walker, stilts and all :))
23 May 2010 6:43pm
23 May 2010 6:56pm
Serious heels and an equally serious step. Whatever she's off to, it will get done. ;)
23 May 2010 7:23pm
Legs of Sex
23 May 2010 8:43pm
@COOLRIDER: Fists of steel.
She is graceful and beautiful....
23 May 2010 10:01pm
Those sinewy legs where made for high heels, but just what kind of work demands such a short dress at
24 May 2010 1:08am
@JoeB: I wonder as well.
Walking so fast and gracefully! Hope she was just for shopping instead of for office!^_^
24 May 2010 1:45am

24 May 2010 2:19pm
24 May 2010 5:44pm
Might be a man. ?
24 May 2010 10:58pm
Wonderful drive by shot, I see the same here in NY, but havent captured it anywhere as near as well as you have here
25 May 2010 2:20am
It does not prevent him from having the fast step and graceful.

Upward mobility.... you mean the dress don't you?
