    Downtown Los Angeles. Directly across the street from Union Station. Not gunshot victims. Just people having a snooze.

    Canon P with Tri-X processed in Rodinal.

    It is a sad testimony of our times that you needed to point out what they were not, Brian. However, it is a fascinating image and the gentleman in the foreground appears to have slept where he fell and contrasts with the more relaxed and comfortable 'pose' of the young lady. Overall a wonderfully quirky shot.

    Thanks Pete. It is indeed a sad testament. Here in the US you just never know.

    On a grassy knoll, no did have my mind racing back to that historical day. It's a great shot, as it asks so many questions beyond the image itself.

    Thanks Rob. I never thought about the grassy knoll comparison but you're right about that. I've visited Dealey Plaza a couple of times and have gone up to the 6th Floor Museum. Even after all these years the place holds a special poignancy.
