I'm only guessing what's going on here, but I reckon his wife is in the shop and he didn't particular want to wander around the lingerie department with her while she decided what to get, so he went outside and waited for her. On the other hand, he might have just sat down for a rest.

That's the nice thing about street photography, we start guessing what's going on with the people in the pictures...

Boy oh! Boy......that could be me sitting there........I must look exactly the same when my good lady decides to enter yet another M&S or a similar store, she spends ages just touching clothes or pulling them off the hangers, or unfolding jumpers, then refolding them; she rarely buys anything, then on the way home she will say...." I wish I had bought so and so ".........sorry ladies.

WOMEN!

I have even asked to see M & S store mangers to request a husband crèche just inside every store, stacked with electronic goodies and other boys toys.

Now, I ensure that I have my little LX5 with me to amuse myself with a little street photography while I wait.

Thank you for letting me get that lot off my chest Wink
