Taken earlier this year at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee as one of a set. Converted here to b/w. I loved her isolation, surrounded by all the paraphernalia associated with the street celebrations. I wonder if she's looking so glum because she got there early and camped out then everyone plonked themselves in front of her. Grin

I'm not surprised she's alone, with that face Grin. Hope she isn't an ePZ member Sad. Well spotted and captured, Chris. Carol

Splendid isolation, Chris. Reinforced by the crowd facing the other way, and the mono taking the happiness out. Strong street candid.

She has such a strong face - she is so well isolated from everyone around her!

A few choice comments already been made, some of which have already added much humour to this wonderfully captured candid. On which indeed lends its self to many interpretations,
