I've a little bit of new material but not much. I still can't drum up much enthusiasm for going on photo trips at the moment.

Anyhow, I noticed this advert at a bus stop in Cardiff bus station and then I saw a pair of legs under the poster so I waited to see what happened and this is the result.

A big thank you to the people who've commented, voted and awarded this image.

Worth the wait.
That's the mark of a great photographer, to have the vision to wait for the perfect moment.
Didn't that Cartier-Bresson chap say something similar?

Many people think they do street photography, and a few actually do it.

You are one of the latter and very good at it.
