Excelent, good collection. I love a good photo walking trip. Cool 2 tone car that guy had on Park Rd. Love the Milton station platforms view and also the look back towards XXXX. Hope the blonde didn't think you were just photographing her.

Hey Lockstar

I believe I saw you today

I was sitting in King Goerge Square just near those shoes on the grass. And someone came over and stepped in amongst the shoes, crouched down and took a close up photo

I think the guy was wearing black jeans?

hehe..
<gasp> My cover is blown! Yeah, that was probably me. I was actually wearing black cargo pants ...

The car was a convenient fluke, and the blonde ... well, as most urban photographers will know, it's usually impossible to get good street level pics in busy areas without people in it :bash:
