PONDERING-WONDERING AND WANDERING

By hobbo
I love eccentrics......I am a bit of a one myself,,so can be excused for taking this shot of a ....Wally....look-alike pondering over his coffee as the lady inside wonders what Iím up to as The reflected lady strides by totally unaware of any of us.

Street, comes together by itsel sometimes.

I do like the lady sitting inside, with her eye on you. You timed this for the reflection of the lady walking past, but I wonder if you took any without passers-by?

I much appreciate your question, and and can see why.

Hi! No because I didnít want to disturb my main subject..... as a very experienced Street Photographer now, I always attempt to judge just how near I can get, and just how far I can go ethically...it can be a fine balance.

This was a case of spotting potential and then letting serendipity take its course.

The type of person you feel you want to talk to, find out if their thoughts are as much anti-A4 as their appearance.

Older people are the real eccentrics. Youngsters think they're so random and quirky, but they've a lot to learn from those who just don't care by dent of their age. Smile

A civilized society is one which tolerates eccentricity to the point of doubtful sanity

That look from the lady inside is the focal point of this shot! A great piece of street photography.
