The distortion really helps to convey the frantic activity of the people going about their business. Good and original shot Bill.

A great POV to capture the action on this shot, and lovely shadows (surprised you didn't save this one for Shadow Saturday).

In view of your description I do hope you don't mind an unrepentant Photoshop tinkerer like me liking the image.

Bill, there are actually people who have posture similar to the posture of the gentleman left in the frame - it's called the green light reflex Wink - really.............

Hope you didn't get trampled taking this shot Bill, but shopping should be relaxing and pleasing, but only if shopping for ones self of course Smile

Fantastic POV, Bill Grin

Very well caught 'busyness' of these long-shadowed people.
