The lady in the middle knows what you're doing, she's amused. She makes it work for me, the detached, ironical spectator.

Both striding out purposefully and in top gear!
The trio is important. The lady in the middle has seen it happening so many times before......
Gently humorous, well observed.

Re: my orange rope - it is looped through the very front of the keel of a boat, possibly Molly Rose. A lot of the boats at Dungeness have the same arrangement, presumably because they have to be hauled from below to clear the steep shingle shelf.

The arrow might suggest the lady in the orange top has the right of way but a collision on the corner does seem inevitable.
Nicely observed and captured piece of street theatre, Ann.

A story enfolds, Ann. It's all about the three women and would it be a stronger image to go for a more letterbox style crop or is the building integral to your image.

I love the look of the woman in the center...she's been there, done that and doesn't have to prove a thing anymore! The letterbox idea is a good one, but I'd hate to lose that great grill work which speaks of more prosperous times.
