When I started chromasia I had no interest in street photography, but I find myself increasingly drawn to everyday scenes such as this: an elderly couple, reading their newspapers, wrapped up against the cold of a winter's afternoon. There's nothing especially striking about this sort of shot – they're just moments in other people's lives – but there's something about the everyday simplicity of such scenes that appeals.

Oh, and for some reason that I can't explain, I particularly like the small weed in the bottom right of the picture and the long crack running along the wall on the opposite side.
