I really like this Bill. Something about the lighting and contrast...
Bill Phillips: Well I am mighty pleased you do Ma'am

It seems to me that he is cleaning his glasses to even have a better view smile
Great B&W, perfect light and shadows here.
Bill Phillips: But who is watching him Lady P?
You've got to have clean glasses if you are going to be a watcher Bill... wonderful balance of light and shadow....petersmile
Bill Phillips: But who is watching him Peter?
A stunning candid with this light and contrast Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard

Providing that's all he's doing..
Bill Phillips: I give up. Everyone so far has totally missed the point of this picture
So, Bill...what is the point???!!! I do see the three characters behind him...who I suspect may be the reflections of "watchers" standing with you in the line of fire?
Bill Phillips: They are the watchers Ginnie. Ah well back to the drawing board grin

Quite an unusual pose Mike, but it conveys a sense that he is trying to do something with his hands but is not quite getting there because he is concentrating on something else.
Bill Phillips: I thought everyone stood like this

outside or inside? In any case he looks thoughtful.
Bill Phillips: He is outside the watchers could be inside Philine

I thought of introspection.

We make of a picture what we wan, Billiam ... It strikes me that his braces have become detached from his trousers.

Mind you we are all capable of doing strange things with our hands when focusing deeply on something else.
Bill Phillips: I'm sticking to choccie box. I try and be artistic and nobody realises

Ah! Yes, I get the point. Judging by the earpiece, he is a member of the Secret Service and he is watching whoever he is guarding to make sure that they don't kick the bucket. Ummm.. Am I close?
Bill Phillips: This is the nearest anyone has got Alan
We are all watching him now.
Bill Phillips: Poor bloke, he'll get a complex now

I see Chad now thinks that I take every B&W photo ;o)

Enigmatic photo Bill - he looks frozen in time as well as in place.
Bill Phillips: Well you take most of the decent ones Mike.
Great lighting Bill.......very atmospheric smile
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Martin
Who is watching them, Bill ...? Nice b/w.
Bill Phillips: Who watches the watchers? We would all like to know that Frank

I would have said "Watched", Bill.
Bill Phillips: That would work Ray!

A watcher being watched, I really like your treatment Bill
Bill Phillips: Very much so Anne
Searching for that lost tanner in the lining of his pocket?
Bill Phillips: Spoken like a true Yorkshireman grin grin grin
OH! I DID see this one - and I like it... apparently not everyone did? Anyway - there are some advantages to getting the next days postings at 4 in the afternoon- I'd commented on this on what was my Thursday evening! smile
Bill Phillips: You were the first and now the last to comment E Which is rather nice smile
