Here's a companion shot to yesterday's entry that better contextualises the blue square that confused people yesterday. There are a few things I like about this shot but my favourite is the rather disdainful "I'd ask you what the hell you're doing if only I could be bothered" look ;-)
I prefer the pic of today. The yesterday´s one no have a clear focus. Anyway both shots are particulary original.
I don't know about this shot. I'm not sure what to look at. The old lady or the bald head.
I think I prefer yesterday's shot to this one. The reason is, in yesterday's, it was more obvious what you were trying to have in focus. This photo, the woman is close, among other things, to be in focus, but not quite.
I don't know, I just like yesterday's photo better ;)

I have a big thing for the whole "street style" photograhy, I really thing this would look good in black and white for some reason, with the whole film look to it. Overall I am a fan, doesnt quite have the character of yesterdays shot but I still dig it.
Hmmm. Dissention in the ranks. :)
I much prefer yesterday's photo for its softer, less defined artistry. The woman's form was more important than the woman herself, if that makes sense. Here, this woman seems to take on too much importance (and isn't all that fun to look at) and I wonder if the man was meant to be in frame at all.
I think one thing that sold yesterday's was the pastel colours. These colours are so much harder and maybe I' m with blinks on the black and white angle. The man is right, I feel, to complete the composition
sorry to jump on the bandwagon, but i agree with Jarod -- i'm conflicted on what i'm to focus on in this picture.
Is the man you David?
I really like this shot and I think is only coming in for critiscism because yesterday's was so so good and not only good, but like a piece of art, like a Jack Vettriano painting or something.
I do get what people are saying about the woman being to important and I think we would all have a different opnion if the lady were, shall we say, a little more photogenic.
I liked the look... I like the text that you add, it is great, it expains what you were going for and has given me new photographic life..
I'm ready to do a street shoot...
this rocks my socks!
:( She looks so sad.
Thanks everyone. I have to say though that I've gradually gone off this shot as the day has gone on, not least because I can't really work out what I was after either. Street photography is something that I need to practice.
I've got to say that I prefer this one. Her isolation and sense of despair/misery is palpable. And the bald guy makes the shot. He represents the blur of busy people really just ignoring her, adding to her loneliness.
i love this so much i could almost hate you.
