Great comment from Ubique! I love it when he sees something in a photo that the 3 second voters miss. I'm glad he has chosen to return to DPC.

Oh, and I gave this a 7, in case you are interested.

Interesting street photography. There is some unstated story that my brain is trying to fill in. Not sure this fits my personal definition of art, but that will vary person to person.

two thumbs = top four & hang on my wall anytime.
It's not really street photography. Or actually it is, but it's street photography that most street photographers don't understand. Bold and yet subtle. Simple yet layered. And 100% organic and additive-free! Contains no artificial anything.

It doesn't have an obvious hook (like a strange juxtaposition, or an unintended visual pun). But it does have a lovely 'closed' feeling, as if you had captured these people and their props in an enchanted bubble, as in a stage play.

Their expressions are interesting; his a little cock-sure, and hers a little apprehensive. But you do feel that they are connected strangers, somehow. And that when they probably part in a moment, he will look after her, and she will glance back too. Betty Boop figures that it all depends on whether the girl's very tentative 10% smile opens up to 50% or more. The importance of Betty can't be overestimated here.

This is a very strong example of why a good and durable photograph is about substance over style. Thank you.
