@Michael Skorulski: Thanks're a mind reader! - I originally titled this photo 'Concentration' before changing my mind!

GJC from Kyoto, Japan

Really well done. The framing is excellent as is the very intense feeling of a complex and fascinating narrative waiting to be told.

@GJC: Thanks GJC....I'm really pleased that you liked it!

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

Oh Ian, it's a treasure, the intensity of the artist and the resigned expression on the 'model''s face..I can see why he wanted to sketch/paint her, there's almost a quiet desperation quality in her...WOW you 've captured something precious. Whether they knew you were taking a photo or not is not part of their world I'm in awe...

@Lorraine: Thanks Lorraine......they're lost in their own little world are'nt they!

Paul van der Meer from Valkenswaard, Netherlands

Realy a cool shot, like the concentration in the face of the man!

Momo from Montpellier, France

great composition here Ian, a classic street scene, man, you've got such a good eye, must be related to your work in architecture...i'm sure this could be anywhere but maybe the square at the top of Montmarte?...reminds me of a Picasso painting I saw in some book years ago...also Valazquez...part of his painting, Las Meninas...ok, it's only a vague resemblance of the artist at his easel looking out at his model/models...

danthro from Suburbia, United States
