Haha. You live in a strange place, Chris. Great catch.
Thanks Rob. I thought it might be you!
I'm very demure, really.
Now that is a suit!
One of the last living members of the Max Miller fan club perhaps?
Thinking of acquiring one for myself, Dave.
I prefer the first of the 2 shots that you couldn't choose between. I find the one with her back to you makes both a more complete composition and has a nice amount of tension to it.
Again, I like the look impacted by the 'cross-processing'.
And I love 'pyjama man' and the fact that he is 'cropped' strengthens the composition I think. An element of the Vivian Stanshalls about him.
I agree Pete. I have come to much prefer that one of the two and you put your finger on the reasons for that. Something I haven't been able to do.
Aww, that is a sad sight.
Another victim of the times I guess.
Yes, all cleared out except for the red chair. A shame in many ways, Dave.
Sad indeed, but I am pleased you captured the memorial hall before an estate agency moved in.
Those color ones remind me so much of the work of Saul Leiter. Great set of window images, Chris.
Pete mentioned Saul Leiter when I posted my first ever photo of the cafe.
I had never heard of him before then, but now I know a little more, I see lots of things in his work that parallel the things I do. Stuff like the window shots, reflections, things that cut off large portions of the frame, disembodied limbs(!) etc. Then I read that he preferred short to medium length telephoto lenses. My preferred focal length is 85 or 90mm. Nothing new under the sun, eh?!
@Pete Askew is always copying me.
You can't trust him. Not one bit, the bounder.
Chris, they could be one and the same person...
Oh, I hadn't thought of that, Rob. Now that you mention it, you must be correct because, after all, they both seem to have an interest in photography. Now that can't just be a coincidence.
