Looking through the rails of the park next to Temple Station I saw a few people sitting outside the small coffee shop. I liked the harsh light and all the bits and pieces.

Thank you for your comments on my previous upload. Much appreciated. Smile

Little things make such a difference. It's the 'ho ho' in this one, and the figures are well framed. Nicely observed, Chris.

Hi Chris,

Thanks a lot for your welcome and messages! Yes it's good to have joined, now I know how compelling it can be! Ron is being very nice to me, so far! I also enjoy candids and black/white so appreciated this image, it has a lot to look at and take in, truly an urban image. It makes it stronger to see it in black/white
Best wishes
Maggie

When I first looked at this, it was mono - you've tagged it as mono too, but I can see splodges of green here and there...perhaps my monitor needs re-calibrating or my eyes do! Wink A great candid though, Chris Smile

lol - both Moira and I zeroed in on the O HO HO! Really like this, the light, the tones, the diagonals of the railings. Better and better Smile

I clearly need to adjust my eyesight - it wasn't the 'HoHoHo' that I first noticed but the 'Exhilarating' !

I love this, full of hustle and bustle, lines and shadows, details and of course the curse of modern society, the mobile phone.

Excellent.

Hi Trev. It's slightly split toned blue/yellow so that might be what you're seeing.

Oh, hurrah! Good to see someone not being too slow bringing out the Christmas decs (unless they haven't been taken down from last year). Another super little slice of life, Chris.
