13/52 The English are waiting and I don't know what to do, in my best clothes

Newer Older

Well, I put a little more thought into this one, although the whole thing only took 10 minutes to set up and take.

One lady on a bike got a shock as she turned into the road towards me, then pretended she hadn't noticed me and carried on. How English!!

Song inspiration in the note link and tags. Go have a listen

    ah ha, i was wondering how you got that look. Works well - and I agree about the cars, actually, you get some nice tones there this way

    ElizaBeth You'll be pleased to know that this is the first of my 52 that I actually quite like. Mainly because I managed to translate the vision in my head into reality. Well sort of =)

    Nice composition ... looks like it could be a scene from a dark English comedy.

    People always behave strangely in the face of strange behavior. It's easier to ignore than to ask what's up.

    Love the shot and the lack of color. Everything just sort of blends into grey-old England.

    This is spectacularly brilliant. An absolutely perfect image in it's ability to startle and then look deeper.
