Rush Hour

By strawman
A photo I took while people watching in London back in March. I was just playing with the camera and how low a shutter speed I could hand hold the camera at. 1/5 f2.8 ISO200

The advantage of a compact is no one cares what you are doing, try this with an SLR and I bet I would attract attention.

Living out in the stick I am amused at how people spend all their time in London ignoring everything around, from each other to the trains etc.

Good old London, I recently moved out and already miss it.

Very nicely taken, you've captured a great deal of motion here.

A good shot John, I like the movement in the handbag.

You put the slow shutter speed to good use here.
