I guess this is from your German trip. Grass roots political chat ... can't beat it.

Oh, a very fine, wonderful b&w photo- and I see where we are and who is talking with whom! Lol at RT - oh, the old man Grass should now be silent!
Bill Phillips: I wonder what they were talking about Philine?

Interesting study. Love the super dark tones..
Bill Phillips: Turned up the black SAVO, then turned up the white... there's a bit in between

I recognize two people in this shot.... Talking Politics on such a beautiful day....I don't think so.
Bill Phillips: Which two Astrid?

I presume C.& U. had to communicate about some deeper things!
Bill Phillips: Clearly they have developed a rapport Philine

Or economics, or religion, or world history
Bill Phillips: I think you were asking each other where the nearest toilet is judging by the way you are standing

Politics can be such fun or such a bore I like the photo treatment
Bill Phillips: Usually the latter vintage

Talking b*llocks more likely. I'm puzzled by what appears to be a missile launch in the background which has old-fashioned street light attached to it.
Bill Phillips: Well in Tiff's case.........

Perhaps it is launching a night time attack on Greece
Don't mention the war!
Bill Phillips: Or the Euro?
Goodness, no. Politics is a taboo subject.
Bill Phillips: Actually they were very interesting telling us about German Politics
like this stark contrasting image
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ayush I'm pleased you do
Striking.....image Bill grin
Bill Phillips: Ta mate smile

Not politics, they look too leisurely for that.
Bill Phillips: Art and literature perhaps then

Fine B&W Bill, the poster has been gagged I presume?
Bill Phillips: I think it was making a point Mike

The world would be a better place if all politicians were treated like this - gag the lot of them, I say!
Bill Phillips: If only.......
I was going to say "or weather" but do they talk weather in Germany?
Bill Phillips: I think so
From my experiences in hearing discussions on current American politics, Bill, I find that those chats have tend to become dark & nasty. Your treatment here seems to mirror that.
Bill Phillips: American politics are beyond me Beverly
ON the other hand he could just be chatting her up for nefarious purposes better not thought about!
Bill Phillips: This is Tiffo we are looking at Brian!!!

If this were in colour, it wouldn't look like politics, more likely a snatched assignation
Bill Phillips: Tiff has an assignation....the imagination reels
Politics are never that black and whitesmile
Bill Phillips: Very true John
Whoa! That is high contrast stuff - symbolic?
Bill Phillips: Not really I just thought the picture lent itself to this treatment!
We'll stand in the road arguing, sod the traffic!
Bill Phillips: Hahaha Traffic? What traffic?
Hey Bill! This is photographic elegance!!!
Bill Phillips: Hey Elizabeth thank you Ma'am!
Talking Politics? or Latte! Will keep us guessing and wondering for months and months. wink I love the fact that it is in black and white. Excellent capture!
Bill Phillips: We will never know...well I could ask Chris but he probably wouldn't remember!

I wonder if they will come to blows?
