  1. Totally John! The pose is interesting – being ben over at first made me think that he was old and infirm, but a subsequent viewing suggests it’s just the table. I continue to be impressed that you point your camera at so many,apparently, unaware people! Or perhaps they become aware later. Frosty has spotted you however.

  2. Mike – unless he opens Stills, he’ll never know. One engages with some but most remain unaware. I think that his eyesight is not all it might be. This is a tram stop with a tiny cafe booth. Would that our cities might discover the delights of trams.

  3. I do get the urge to find him a chair. But perhaps then I need to help him up onto it, that table looks high.

  4. I saw Die Welt in the background and thought “this is not England” and then saw your location. But you could easily be in England and this would not be out of place in Australia either.

    The background has that background low contrast look to it which makes for easy depth perception and seperates our subject well.

  5. I empathise with his difficulty with the small print! Do they publish lotto results in the paper?

    I have a sense of sadness and tragedy from this.

  6. I would have liked a stool but the table is handy! He needs a pair of glasses for sure but is getting old and making do. I think that Robert is right: although a step back ensures that you are in Germany, there are so many occasions when one is in ‘anytown’.
