Seeking photo of someone walking towards the camera but looking back

I'm designing a flier for a community theater production and I'm looking for an image of someone (man or woman) walking towards the camera but looking back over their shoulder at what they are leaving.

I've done a precursory search on Google Images but haven't found anything that really works. Any help would be appreciated.

General rules of thumb:

1. Shouldn't seem out of the ordinary. For instance, no disaster or war scenes. Just someone in the throws of everyday life.

2. Should be obvious they are walking. In other words (one leg and one arm forward, one leg and one arm back). It is needed for the effect.

3. Subject should be late 20's to early 40's. Doesn't matter if its a man or woman.

4. Would prefer a full body shot, as it relates to the concept.

5. Photo can be color or b&w. Will be b&w in the long run anyway (cheaper to print large amounts).

6. Would prefer something with a decent resolution but not a total must. Right now doing a proof of concept.

I will likely shoot something myself later. Will continue to search through stock photo libraries and the like in the meanwhile but if anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
TAPN

Grab a camera and some pretty people and do it yourself.

If you have $100-or-so, you could go to one of the stock-photo exchange guys.

Hm. You're right about the lack of that pose in stock photos.

Time to do a shoot... anyone want to model for me?

Oddly enough, there's a ton of photos with the opposite (walking away from the camera and looking back).

Which doesn't make a lick of sense.
