    Maybe the couple were a pair of psychics and they were waiting for Geof! Or he hired them as models?? LOL.

  • Hehee, a writer’s fertile imagination at work again :-D

    lol…..were they working for you
    ….I can imagine you up there like a detective…..hmmmmmm what’s going on now….really like this shot Ell….the guy standing looks like he is about to jump on the guy with the camera….:)

  • “hmmmmmm what’s going on now” … precisely!! Thank you Kate :o)))

    Not only was I being careful about peering over the railing for my own safety (nervous of heights) but didn’t want my presence known either ;o)))
    3rd level of this carpark is usually excellent ‘viewing’ :-D

    A wonderfully surreptitious shot! This series is awesome. It’s a popular spot, eh?

  • Thanks so much Rick :o)))

    Yeah, almost any given time of day, there’s always a few photog types trying to get ‘The Shot!’ … it’s a wonder the graffiti types get any time to themselves to create! ;o)))

    Those pesky photographers:)! Don’t you hate that when they step into your frame because they want to capture what you are capturing?
    That’s why I point my camera at them; makes for some funny scenes sometimes:)

    Great third floor parking garage you have there:) Mind if I join you when in Australia:)?

  • Hahaha, that’s a grea tip, thanks Rene! :-D
    Very happy to show you this 3rd floor ‘viewing platform’, just let me know when your plane lands in Melb! :-D

    I love this shot Ell! A fantastic B&W street photograph.

  • Thanks so much Jordan :o))
    Had intended for this to be a support image for this one, until Geof suggested
    the title ;o)) … after that, this became a stand-alone image in it’s own right :o)))
