..reading between the lines...

By John_Horner  
With noise levels at mega decibels from the children playing on the beach on this warm day. The guy was oblivious and even though he got stepped over, a ball in his back and sand over him, he just slept on. Irony to think we spend hundreds of pounds on space age mattresses.
I have a b&w conversion of this but the colour is markedly better in my humble opinion.

Thanks for looking.

quite disturbing really, that you can have such an idealic and romantic location such as this yet the plight of the homeless is rammed down our throats with such venom, makes you think a little doesn't it?

As ever with your recent work John, it's outstanding and I wonder how it will sit the the pro EPZers...

Taking the shot through those distracting bars was a brave move, one I feel that has worked

John, a sad comment on our society very well presented. The red works well for me.

Agree with DTL [for once!]; the bars are very well conceived and brave, John.

The composition here works very well John, a good piece of photo journalism without being intrusive.
