This is the fist blog I'm commenting on, so I feel very much like an armature at this, but I'll feel comfortable soon enough I'm sure. I really like this photo. Not only does it show real life in action, but it shows the character of the people, the way they almost flowed together. I know that’s a strange word to use, ’flow’, but the people in this photo really seem so different but so similar at the same time, it just mixed well. Then to have the contrast of the old-fashioned dresses, with the more out of date building, its just interesting. It makes me want to listen to a story. It actually makes me want to hear their story, whoever 'they' are.
