These three people have chosen to take a break from the busy city life.
Shot in Berlin from across Sophienstrasse. You can even see me reflected in the lower right of the light fields, shooting this image.
Moments after I shot this, they discovered me, and sent angry hand signals…

    Lovely composition Kofoed. Good to see a master at work. I have had a few of those hand signals myself…

    Thank you so much for your kind work, John. And thanks awfully much for the favouriting. I’m honoured.
    I have noticed the hand signals you have been up to in some of your works. Some poople are so touchy….

    Excellent work Kofoed, I haven’t gotten any hand signals but the birds give me dirty looks.

  • Thank you very much, Marvin. Very much appreciated.
    Oh, they do? Well, as long as they stick to dirty looks it’s OK, I guess?

    G’day KELD!

    This works so well with ‘At the Library’ and equally displays great tonal range, contrast and lighting effect.
    With the two people sitting as they are I feel as though I am peering in through the window deciding whether to enter or not. The image has a slightly voyeuristic feel to me.


  • Hello again, Dennis.
    Once again, I’m so happy for your detailed and wonderful comments.
    Thank you very much. And thanks awfully much for the favouriting this also. It’s a double honour.
