A grabbed shot on the Rue Mouffetard in Paris last October.

We are taking a rest from uploading for a few days but will try to pop in for a look now and again. Normality returns on December 27th (in my case at least) . . .

Wishing a peaceful and enjoyable Christmas to Pete and the staff of epz and to all contributors near and far.

An image which at first is about shadows but then the crow and begging women capture your attention.
Good one Bill
All the best to the both of you too

Excellent, Bill. Superb light and shadow and attention to detail with the object of the image being overshadowed by the hurrying throngs.
Enjoy your 'mini break' from epzSmile

Excellent mono, and all that empty space in the foreground makes me wonder what's in store for us all next year. The pigeon doesn't know how lucky it is.
All the best Bill.

Fascinating foreground.
This is another one I would have cropped just above the woman's head. What a statement of the suits walking by ignoring the poor. The price of their lunch would probably have fed her for a week!

Bring on normality Bill, I can't take much more of this.

Have a right good time my friend, you've been a such a pillar of the different, which is always a good thing.

My very best to you and Dear Moira,

Have a great time over the festive season, who knows what tomorrow may bring.

Everything came together in this one. I can't see it without the pigeon - it's the first thing that grabs my eye.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Bill.

My nan used to do that all the time, cut the heads off people. She wasn't considered arty though, her photos were just greeted with groans & cries of "not again nan". Maybe she was more arty than we realised.

Can't see the beaker though.
