That is so beautiful Efrossini, i would have it on my wall. I love photos of the backs of people, but this one combined with the pigeons and the quality of light.......lovely. All those life stories squashed onto one bench....................

An excellent image Effrossini. The birds and the people in the background make it a moment in time even though the five men are there for much longer.
