Taken this afternoon in Covent Garden, this gentleman was quietly watching some street entertainment. I would of liked a bit more space below his feet but had to loose a little while correcting the verticals..

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter Day
Thank you for your time, as always your thoughts/comments are very welcome!

The Crusting Pipe Free Wi-Fi... Almost rusty! This is a very quirky, idiosyncratic image, one where we can write our own story. I like the way the two subjects occupy the frame - perfect use of portrait. And for some reason I love his shoes.
Great minds think alike, I've uploaded the other side of the coin, so to speak - a Covent Garden performer.

Thanks Ian, yes I agree would work without the sign too. I just found it quite humorous - as if he would want free Wi-Fi at that moment?

Works a treat. Love the distance captured between the elderly man who appears to be very happy in his world - with the free Wi-Fi sign. Describes the generation gap superbly.

Excellent candid capture, Sarah, think the inclusion of the Wi-Fi sign works very well. Very nicely processed, too. Regarding your comments on the space below his feet, I'm sure a girl of your talents would be able to extend the canvas size on the bottom edge, then clone the paving stones in!
Hope you've had a great Easter,

Very good.
There is a total disconnect between the man and the poster which probably sums up quite well his attitude & disinterest in modern technology.

Yes a bit more space at the bottom would be nice, but for me correcting the verticals was far more important in this case as the eye moves upwards / downwards between the man & poster with the pillars acting as a diagonal link.
