Trashy Colours

By SlowSong
I waited ages for some people to walk by who might match the bins, then these three turned up. By this time I was wanting to move on so I thought they'd do. I've no patience for all this waiting around which is why I don't get the best shots.

V2 is just a couple of blokes in the obligatory high viz jackets having just a little interaction by the same bins.

I get rather impatient waiting around for just the right shot too! But think you've got a cracking shot in V1, Chris, with the people wearing colours that match the bins Wink

I know what you mean Chris - besides, you might have been arrested for loitering and that wouldn't do! Smile Good street photography!

The diagonal elements and colour matching add a lot of zingggg to the V1 image. Like it.

You are not a natural wildlife photographer without patience Chris but you stayed around long enough to get a great image here. - gary

Definitely, V1. Great pov and it's well worth the waiting as the colours perfectly match. Mission accomplished, Chris!

Worth waiting for I would say... Gloves and bag with matching bins... A new fashion statement?
