People crossing the Millennium Bridge taken through a dirty screen. St Paul's in the b/g and various shadows and stuff. The writing on the perspex screen is a list of names but I've no idea who they are. Various dignitaries I expect - The 5000 Club, whatever that is. Anyway, they're not important. I liked this girl who was travelling against the mob and the shadowy chap on the left.

(Hey Andrew, I broke a rule too. Rule of Thirds - tsk! Grin)

Big thanks to Barb for her UA yesterday. Smile

It's the 2000 club Chris,
so my guess it has something to do with the Millennium !!
Good quirky shot.

Nobody has been on to you yet about using a polariser to remove the reflections. I'd kick them out if they did. Reflections add so much, questioning reality as here. Reflections on dirty screens, windows etc are even more interesting.
Or are they reflections? I'm beginning to wonder myself now.
Endlessly fascinating, and a great expression too. It had to be mono, of course.
Regards
Bill
