|I took my small Canon G12 into the supermarket and took surreptitious shots as I did my shopping, most were blurry or missed their mark but I got a couple I could have used. However, after I took my groceries back to the car I swapped cameras, went back and returned the trolley, was going to grab a couple of shots before leaving. But a lady needed help getting her coin out of the trolley she'd returned and after helping her I left. After I crossed the roadway between the supermarket and the car park I stopped and took three shots of the doorway as it opened for entering customers. This was the middle shot, and the image presented is cropped edge to edge of the space between the doors.
