G20 summit – apprehension

  1. This works well with or without the title. Just seen as an image it hints at lots of possibilities. The photographic equivalent of a short story.

  2. I think the title adds an extra degree: the opening hours sign, the bank man’s gaze and the look the other way create dramatic tension.
    without the title, I think critical context is lost.

  3. The color here is wonderful– with what I consider your signature reds. The bright red spot of the tie surrounded by greens seems especially fortunate. I’m with Colin in that it doesn’t require the title to work. Very well composed.

  4. The title makes it a neighbour to its predecessors but it would work with many other titles (waiting).

    I was reminded of Howard.

  5. Thanks for comments. In addition to the title, I think that is a police van reflected in top half of the door.

    Rex – a gap in my knowledge – who is Howard?

  6. Very . . . planar. Might try it in B&W too.

  7. Wow! So many threes at play here not sure where to start. The chap in the suit’s poster like quality is particularly haunting. Great use of colour too. Well seen.
