Love this, feet can be almost as expressive as faces and hands and every pair here is different. Four pairs retreating, one pair advancing. Plus the hands behind back. And the shadows, of course.

A great shot of people having a good time, it works really well in mono and the shadows are sharp Nathan.

A well spotted opportunity for a Saturday shadows themed image, Nathan, and like Colleen I too like the crop applied.

Love the crop on this Nathan,good choice with the B&W.
I am wondering if it was a little either side of mid day given the shortness of the shadows.
Have a great week end,

This works so well - I love the crop - and that all their "tops" are roughly speaking in a line - this makes the coming and going figures seem as if they are puppets dancing up and down SmileSmile
The short shadows are a delightful bonus

Is the one third from the left going the wrong way, or walking backwards, Nathan?
Makes a great shadow image.

Some shady characters indeed Nathan, looks good in mono. One thing is for sure nobody can accuse you of being a jack of all trades and master of none!Grin
