Must be clothes for bankers, collar & tie job but no head required. Great observation as ever Bill, you do good work.

Grrrrrrrrrrr, Moira is feeling more and more annoyed that she didn't get her own camera out...

I thought "should I make a comment about white collar workers?" and then thought "no, that would be too obvious"!

So I'll just say "Well captured Bill!"

A good call you waiting for a figure to pass.

I had an idea you'd spotted the opportunity, then waited for someone in a suit to walk by. Did you have long to wait?

It's not like Moira to miss a shot like that. She must be slipping. I'm more used to the pair of you arguing over who got there first. Smile

Very stylish, almost iconic, Bill. Maybe it will be, when your talents are properly recognised.

A very well seen and taken image. I like it a lot, worth waiting for some body appropriate to include in the image at the right place. I wonder if given a second chance to use slow shutter speed and give sense of movement of the person in the image will probably will have more interactions and interest in the story. Comparision of the two images in my opinion will be interesting. Best regards. Balwant
