.... Beautiful?

Well, in a broader sense of the word (attached with three clicks  ;) )

Some of the shots have been around elsewhere, becaue I'm familiar with them, but can't for the life of me remember where I saw them. I guess that's the price one pays for too many hours at the computer instead of getting a life or job within the reality sector. On the other hand, as long as I march my one, prescribed hour per day, that should keep the veins clear, thus perpetuating the status quo.

I get a twinge of doubt over two shots: the woman with the binos between the heads of policemen or whatever they are; the lady with the tight skirt and undamaged hose climbing in or out of a condemned building; isn't her butt well-lit compared with the walls!

There's seems to be an underlying sense of homage to Mr Parr, not one of my favourite snappers. I think colour is used (to effect) to add a sense of drama that would not, otherwise, exist to any great extent. Which to me, seems fair enough.
