Superbly timed and excellent Bill.

ps, it's refreshing to see some sort of entertainment in a child's hands that doesn't need batteries!

"The windmill of escapism . . ." What a poetic remark, Bill. I love it, as it expresses it so well. Such a poignant image, and amazingly well taken shot.

Better than Harry Worth impressions, Bill TongueGrinGrin I think the mechanical physics of revolving windmills needs explaining to him though Tongue

This could be a bit confusing.

I was confused for a moment but I am easily confused anyway, a great candid Moira.

oops sorry I mean Bill, this is normally Moira's type of image, I rest my case Re. the confusion.

Sorry to break the mould but I'm really not sure about this one Bill. It is a sharply captured candid shot but IMHO there is so much going on in there that apart from the title, I am really not sure what I am supposed to be focussing on. I copied your image and cropped it so that there was much less reflection and it made more sense to me. You haven't enabled mods so can't post it but it seems to me that there is more than one image in here and several different ways of getting the best from it.

He seems totally engrossed in his windmill! Smile Unlike Lynne, we are obviously supposed to be focussing on the boy, and the inclusion of the rest of the family behind who he oblivious to enhances the shot Smile

Immaculate timing to just catch the yellow windmill at the very edge of the reflection, Bill.
I like the parallel world idea of this one. The dad pushing the pram is part of two worlds, the one with the real people around him, and the world in the reflection with the people who are not real to us as they are only a reflection, part of another world, and not appearing in the real world on the right of the image. The boy is about to share the two exsistences, but is only partly there.

Well I've just spent a very pleasant few minutes trawling through your gallery as I felt sure I had seen this street before - and here it is
Lovely colourful capture.

You've captured the moment perfectly in this street scene, I like the parallel universe effect, it reminds me a bit of the film "Sliding Doors" which starred Gwyneth Paltrow and John Hannah
