In the spirit of Winograd

Great 'street/candid' shot. I love the way everyone seems to be up to something different. The inclusion of the corner of the building on the left almost 'anchors' the shot with the drainpipe telling us all where we are viewing from. Cheers Pete Taplin p.s. I'm not actually based in Uzbekistan. I'm sure it's a lovely place, but I'm from a place called Bristol in the west of England

Yes and No

I like this photo but it's only superficially Garry W-like. For one he didn't do many hipshots -- paging through books you'll find that his always used the finder, and it's rare to see a large off-focus figure in a GW print (I hear he like pushing his tri-x to ASA 1200 to do this). Are these street shoppers?
