Further to my upload yesterday, this was the view out of the big windows in the shopping mall that the people in the chairs were facing. I thought this little scene looked as if it came from a film or something. Almost arranged.

There's the man in the background taking a picture with his phone, the two street cleaners having a chat, the man in the foreground having a fag and conversation on his phone and the three workmen just looking at various things on the ground and not doing much at all. In the far b/g was a lady just walking into the scene but I couldn't wait for her as everyone was moving. It looked sort of unreal with the flower beds, chairs and floor markings. Smile

The slight haze you can see is because I couldn't get right up to the glass so there's a bit of reflection.

"Don't dig there, dig it elsewhere
Your digging it round and it ought to be square
The shape of it's wrong, it's much much too long
And you can't put hole wher a hole don't belong "

An existentialist shot in mono, I like it a lot.

Choreographed for a theatrical tableau. You couldn't have asked for better.

It's amazing, isn't it. Just watching a scene like this, and seeing things unfold. Love it. It does look like a stage set-up. Just waiting for the director.

I love to find places where I can look down on people. Very seldom does anyone think about looking up!

I do rather like these high viewpoint images, looking down on the world below, here with people going about their daily activities. Great mono capture, Chris, and don't thnk it would work as well in colour Wink
