  1. I notice the RED! :-)
    A clever juxtaposition. I was tempted to say it needed a person at a window in the flats, but I know that’s wrong. :-)

  2. Is the guy on the bus trying to tell us how many floors there are?

  3. Funny one this. I’ve looked at it a lot and it’s clever and well executed, but I’m afraid it’s leaving me a bit cold. I think it’s because I want for more ‘relationship’ with the people, but they seem to be simply an adjunct to the main theme? Not even relating to each other, although that tells its own story, of course.

    Well seen and thought out, but not quite there for me I’m afraid.

  4. Mike – I think that comes from too much thinking on my part! Normally I am on the move but here I decided to hang around for a few minutes trying out different buses and angles against this block of flats by the Edgeware Road. As to the people, the outcome was intended to be half in half as to people and objects: the man with the hand is linked to the ‘sugar daddy’ ad, so there are two threads to the shot. The saying goes that if one has to explain a shot then it hasn’t worked but I quite like this for its ‘thinking’ rather than straight aesthetics – not to the point of defending it ‘obsessively’ but nor rolling over!

    • John, no need to defend:) and it’s a positive that it comes across as a cerebral shot rather than intuitive perhaps?

  5. I certinly got that link between the man and the Sugar Daddy ad. When I scrolled the image, a square crop from the bottom presented which looked a much stronger image: more focussed on the people.
