An excellent portrayal of the use of the modern camera. An amusing shot that captures life as it is. Well done.! I like it.

Long time no see, Seamus, welcome back. Fabulous shot. One of the best street shots I've seen in ages. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

Clever and full of metaphores, a very interesting and well timed shot - nice work.

Thanks lads, much appreciated. Good to be back, Russ.

For the technically minded, the shot was taken with a friend's  Fuji X100 -  remarkable camera with extraordinary  on-board flash capabilities for such a tiny unit and very high ISO performance  as documented all over the place, but a son of a bitch at times handling-wise.  On the strength of it, however, I've just taken the plunge and bought the new Fuji X Pro1 and its three lenses. Let's see how 'streetwise' it really is. I'll  keep you posted  - strictly street images for critique, nothing technical or more appropriate for cameras and equipment thread. unless asked, of course.

Regards to all,

Seamus

A decisive moment, to be sure.
