The set was taken over a period of about five minutes. I had to wait for gaps in the pedestrians in order to take them.

The background will look familiar to some of you as I've used it before.

The building is a closed Peacocks store and I'm surprised that these posters are still there.

Colour versions will follow later.

Next upload will be windows.

The female poster looking towards the player pulls the image together well, Ken. Lots of possibilities here.

I took a set of pictures in front of Peacocks in Newcastle when only posters were there, concealing building work; once the shop opened it didn't last as long as the poster wall . . . .
V1 for me, Ken:the two pairs of figures encapsulate the gulf between reality and the fantasy world of advertising.

This is difficult Ken - I do like the accordian player in the image by himself so I'm not sure whether v2 or v3. I slightly find the lady texting a bit of a distraction (but I guess that's true street photography) - but all good stuff, as usual! Smile

I, too, would like to see it without the lady, and just the right-hand poster. However, I do like the musician looking hopefully towards the approaching lady, but feel she is too close to the left frame. Maybe waiting a few seconds longer? I still think you are a master at this type of street photography, Ken.

the world divided in two, female on the left, male on the right.
prefer V1, the slightly blurred lady is really important in the picture, IMO.
I agree with Pamela, about waiting 1 second more, but this is street photography, sometimes you can't wait, not even for half a second.

Unfortunately waiting a second or so longer doesn't always work. As soon as I pressed the shutter in version one a couple entered the scene from the right and obscured the accordionist. I could see them coming.
