Man reads book

By SlowSong
A strange place to sit, right in the middle of the steps, but he looked happy enough. I rather liked him so I took him from both sides, but V2 has pigeons. An added bonus. Wink

BTW, if you think V1 is wonky it's because I was standing at an angle and any attempt at straightening looked really odd.

The three sets of people work well as a triangle, especially in mono Chris. The pigeons add more flavour also!
Thanks for the really great comment on my train window, I so appreciated it!!
Like them both, both work well in mono

Has a look of the 'David Beckhams' about him in v1, Chris. Like the 'triangles' of peoples, and v1 looks the better balanced. Think I would have wandered off into St James Pk or behind St Martin's to read...

Hard to choose between the two. V1, I think, not sure why. Or maybe V2 BlushBlushBlush
For some reason these HAVE to be mono.

These two fine candids are absolutely right in mono. I have a slight preference for No. 1 but if I come back for another look I might change my mind.

Lovely to see someone so engrossed in a book - I think I like V2 best but there again I like V1 too!
