    Wow, love them all and they all tell different stories to me:

    1. Looks like UK where I live where there are many old farmers with sticks who use them a lot when talking to emphasize a point, and they use shopping trollies as well.
    2. Great play on what I perceive as religious contrasts, the couple in the front openly kissing and the 4 ladies in the back with headscarves that imply they could be of a religion that forbids public displays such as the couple.
    3. The dog with the head guard looking toward the child with her head down (is the child sad because of the dog being injured?), the white dog under the sign new arrivals and the man watching the woman moving at speed.
    4.2 forward one back on the bench, and the patterns - lady with diagonals, man in plain suit with horizontal band on hat and lady stood with horizontal lines on jacket, great mix of complimentary shapes in close proximity.

    I love them all and can see why you are so pleased - they all show what good observation, timing and camera skills can deliver!

    Thanks for sharing

    Great shots. All have great character an juxtaposition of elements. That guy with the cane in the first one looks really old.

    Love the first one. Like the second a lot - would it improve it any to have the couple a bit off center? The third one doesn't do anything for me. Number four so-so; background is a little distracting but I like the folks on the bench.

    Nice, shots, but, honestly, do you think the 3d shot received the processing it deserves ????
