    Why take the risk? ( candid snap)

    I was passing a shoe shop in St Andrews when this little scene met my gaze.

    Obviously the lady has been involved in footwear carnage before and was well prepared.

    Why take the risk?  ( candid snap)

    If it is the St Andrews I have heard of I thought it would be standard protection against stray golf balls.

    Nice photo journalism shot.

    Even if the injury to her right leg was not incurred in the shopping mayhem; you scots are a tough lot to ride your bikes with a broken or sprained leg just to get to the pre-Xmas sales

    Considering that I'm a salesperson, I think I'm fully qualified to conclude that she was simply prepared to do battle with her salesperson.
