Thank you for taking the time to view the larger version. It's really quite fun :o)

Also taken at Siam Square in Bangkok during the weekend. A lot of people passed by, but it took quite a while - standing/looking sideways with my arms constantly stretched before me and the shutter half pressed - until someone actually stood still before it. Ruined my back waiting for this moment, but I like to think it was worth it. It's a bit of a personal favourite of mine.

Thank you for viewing. feel free to critique.

There is nothing in this that is not needed for the picture. Very good. What makes this I think is that if the children would have really been there behind a screen of noise isolated glass, they very well might have done something exactly like this. Bert

i love your poster pictures, so effective. This one is brilliant but took a good few seconds to initially work it out...quite a ghostly jumble, they almost seem to be grabbing him. Well worth the back ache methinks!

Classic street photo, a well spotted opportunity.

I can't help thinking what it looks like in colour, as it looks as though the children's hands are painted?

Good observation Steve. Am working on a colour version or rather one with selective colouring (the billboard was already selective coloured; only their hands were in colour) Thinking about a version with the man also in b&w, and only the kids' hands in colour, but have encountered some problems to get the result I want :o(
