Uptown Guy

By SlowSong
Taken while waiting for the lights to change at Piccadilly Circus.
I took the Canon 40mm (about 60mm equivalent) prime out for a spin yesterday; I liked it and on this occasion didn't really miss a zoom at all.

So very well taken, great DOF and posture. The title is well reflected by the way it is shot, Chris.

Wow...top notch candid portraiture, Chris! The title matches the chap so well Smile

He didn't notice the lens right there pointed at him?? Now that's someone totally lost in his thoughts Grin

Actually, he does look rather stressed about something.

I am sure in 20 years time Chris,
we will be a nation plagued by an ear disease caused by all the things they stick in their ears now.
But I suppose that is me just waxing lyrical again !!
