Met this chap as I walked past him and was drawn to how it looked with just his legs showing as he rested against the wall that had recesses in it. He was happy to have his image taken as long as his face wasn't showing. He was a worked for the construction going on and was on his coffee break.

That's a great capture Gareth, with or without the legs.

With regards anonymity, it's a good job his name isn't on the cup !

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.

I feel that I have seen and liked this image in another location. Second viewing has not changed my opinion, lovely shot.

Can't work out whether it would benefit (or hinder) from the removal of the tiny bit of nose

Brilliantly captured though, and something interesting and original

I think the tiny bit of nose really makes it. Super photo.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Nice one, Gareth. Great sighting, and cool contrast between the white of the jumpsuit in the foreground and the deep black way out in the background.

It's a nice 'seize the moment' shot and it works. (I wonder how many of them were wearing slip-on toetectors?)
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Just a great capture. Without the legs it is a really nice pattern and composition. With the legs it is a human moment.

Dan
