Pity no reflection but that would be a different picture - this one is definitely about the balance of the foreground interest and the observer. Very, very funny.

The observer and his expression more than makes up for it, Chris. Is this the guy just down from St Pauls?

Yup. You know the place. Taken just before he started "work". Smile

More like a Du Grin

Thanks Lillian. Still at it. Plastering going on as I type.

And I've no idea Joline. There are loads of tourists around having their photos taken with these guys so I suppose it must be worth while. Better than begging anyway. Smile
