Bus spy

I took the day off to do some work on my thesis. Yes, I still haven't finished it, anyway with the help of a dear friend in Italy I have made some good strives on the thesis. God willing by the end of next month it should be complete.

This one was taken this afternoon, I went shopping with a dear friend for a new pair of jeans. After a long walk with a good friend I ended up getting a pair of jeans, two pairs of shoes and one t-shirt. I've been fanscinated by the work Bono has been doing with Red. So I made sure to get the Inspi(red) shirt from Gap and and pair of Converse (RED) canvas shoes. Basically I've spent impulsely and now I've got to get loads of work done.

Oh what do you think of this image? I've decided to do something abit different from my normal style. Some might disagree with me on that. Some see my style through all the things I do differently.

It's a very interesting image - it could be argued that the photo is difficult on the eye as it has three main focus points (statue, building & the man watching) so can be hard to concentrate on one thing, but I think it works!! Now, back to that thesis.....
Jide Alakija: Thanks.

I really like this, well captured and the editing is almost there, I can see the PP you did around the guy, there is also a tad bit around the guy in front, if that was intended, in my opinion it does not work. That for me is the only thing that lets this image down. I love the way there is a connection with the old man and the camera.

Jide Alakija: See my reply to mimelmio.

you're on form! packed with atmosphere. mal
Great shot Alakija, without the title I could have been still doubting what it was. The Bus window frame frames the reflection perfectly. Is it Albert Hall?
