On the Cobbles He Hobbles

Thanks you everyone for your encouraging comments on my last street photo. It seems there is more interest in the subject then we think.

What with sorting and processing the wedding photos I managed to salvage and the football, I didn't manage to upload yesterday. This is another street scene to get people interested in the wonderful art of street photography.

Thanks for looking and any of your comments - Paul

I really like the overall composition and the subject.
The eye moves naturally from the old man to the ascending street, where the spotlight is.
Here I see the only distracting detail of the picture. That is the bicycle's wheel.
I recognize it is a small detail, but once noted is really distracting.
said that, it's a really beautiful pic.
best regards

Another well seen and taken street shot,
has to be mono as it has bought out some lovely light I am sure
