The Girl Sat Next to Me on Platform 1


Couldn't resist a sneaky shot of a girl sitting on the bench next to me as we waited for the train ...



And in spite of all my urbane charm she totally ignored me!

Nice shot!
Photoshop (or similar) blurring, doesn't look like lens bokeh ?

Very nice Mark. She could have looked at you & scowled though.

Nice shot - do you think that future generations will be born with earphones instead of ears?

Thanks guys. It was the best of a 3 shot take shooting blind with camera held innocently on my lap as I looked nonchalantly away!

I think future generations will be implanted with a GPS tracking module, camera, iPhone and Facebook app!
