  3. I see the children lost in each other. Are they admiring the person or the other's vehicle?????? I think the woman is one of the mothers and the man with the bag is just passing by. We could write a story about them. PERFECT for black and white.

  4. No, I didn't miss the children...but while they were cute (I figured they belonged to the women and were clowning around with each other) it was the gentleman and his stride and general attitude that struck me first.

    Whatever, it is a terrific photo!

  6. Interesting set of comments.

    For me this image is about the children: they have to speak to each other around the man's legs. They have to wait for him to pass before they can go on with their game. So they are the action. For me the massive figure in black (is he extremely tall or is that just perspective?) is part of the landscape.

    BTW ... I love this series of street shots. I like to look at European streets. But then the reason I watch the TdF is to see what all the villages/villagers have in their window boxes!!

  7. Perfect shot... I just love how the children look at each other. And the man between them.

  8. Jacob... an interesting point... and once I look at it again, I realise that it might be more insightful than I had originally realised. The girl on the right does in fact belong to the man. The boy I am not sure... but your comment has made me think that he might have actually belonged to the woman, who is.... in my opinion, looking at the man... who belongs to the girl... and well, you know what I mean!?!?!?!?

  10. The guy is not mean to you because he likes you - He's Just Not Into You! :)

  12. Wonderful series of shots...with great titles all of them. I'm really enjoying looking at them. I think the kids are amazing in this shot. I looked at them first because Cupid was a cherub so I assumed the comment referred to the kids!

  13. The more I look at this, the better it becomes!

    It is definitely all about the children. I really fail to see that the woman is looking at that chap: her facial lines are of someone who is miles away.

    But look at the kids: she is coy; he is gung-ho!

  14. This photo is just fantastic! The children are the most interesting to me on this photo. They are so sweet while looking at each other. They made me smile. A woman on the left side of the photo could be a boy's mother. The girl’s parents are somewhere behind, perhaps even next to you. As for the man between the children, I don't think he has anything to do with them.

  17. Oh, I love this! I wonder if, one day when they're older, they would find themselves looking at each other again? Shaun, do save this for posterity!

  20. Fantastic shot and I agree with the kids being the major theme - deservedly, and the adults a minor theme. A honey.

  23. What caught my eye on this is the children and their micheavous, yet at the same time, innocent way of looking for one another...it's like a love story in the making

  24. Baron... I agree with the love story... or perhaps that is what we want to believe. He just wants her bike maybe?
