Aha! I recognise this! I'm quite fond of these statues. The lady looks like she's standing on the top of the building.
A good take on this.

This must have been at the crack of dawn as there isn't a Cappucino poser in sight, or any of the usual London weirdos for that matter, apart from the figure on the roof who is as wooden as the one on the right. Nice reportage Bill.

Excellent, Bill. I couldn't get a decent angle on either/both, you've got a superb take.

I wonder what you have to do in the city to get put up the pole? Great work with the camera here Bill, straight uprights in a difficult situation it seems.

I don't think they are really poles apart here Bill.
The guy could pop into the bar,
while the girl could pop into the bra thingy.
And in her case,that certainly keeps everything neatly tucked in and together !!

I never saw the man when I went down there. This is a great view of them both. Love the title too.

Strange to have a bar that sells bras...but everything else is so well observed Bill. It pays to stand back and take in the whole scene. before pressing the shutter.

I like your angle of attack. You see the man and then the name of the bar is almost like an instruction telling you there is more in the picture. It's then you spot the woman on top of the building, or at least thats where she looks like she is.
Greaty image, well spotted and taken Bill.

LOL...VERY well spotted and composed, Bill.

BRAVO Grin

One day those poles might turn.

He'll go, "Where were you all my life?"

She'll go, "There was 'more' between us than you thought."
