A moment in time

Shot with Olympus E500
Do you ever get the sensation of sliding past other people's lives? Like a tableau glimpsed out of the window of a speeding train? I believe that the larger the city, like London, the more intense that feeling can be.

This photo was taken in Postman's Park (see a few days ago) but it could have been almost anywhere, anytime.

You will have to make up your own story, I can't tell you any more except that I like this as a photo.

Me too! This is lovely. Really enjoy your 'ordinary Londoners' series too Ham.

Great picture - her hair is an amazing colour. Strangely intimate picure. Almost feels rude to look at it!

Thanks all, actually, had I thought about it a little more before posting it, I may have had second thoughts. Oh well.

Beautiful! What a perfect pair - and well framed with a lovely setting. Thank you for sharing.

Here is the legend I would add for this photo:
"Wow, sculpturist Ron Mueck did a good job with this sculpture. I like her/him (your choice!)"
