fag break

By maggieh
This "living statue" was taking a break, his hot stuffy costume was lying beside him whilst he enjoyed a cigarette. He was sitting on the wall outside the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square.

You know this is really timeless, if you'd said it was from the 70's I'd have believed you! Great shot.

Love it!!

took it in colour and changed once it was on the computer. Colour was quite good but the plastic bag that is by the lady in the background was an orange sainsburys bag and difficult to get rid of.
