This is place for the walking guy to sit, 'cos the rule is "one per bench".

Great stuff, Richard.
Richard Trim: '' ... he aint goin' ta sit on my bench.''

This is very English Richard
Richard Trim: Indeed it is Mr Phillips. richard
I like the way the picture is balance, and the forms a pattern.

Even though the benches are 3-seaters, heaven forbid that more than one should sit. The extra person might dare to say good morning, putting the first person at the risk of having to reply! This is England and that would never do.
Richard Trim: and it is getting worse by the day Sheila ... except on Shutterchance. richard

Not a very friendly bunch smile
Richard Trim: Londoners were very sociable during the Second World War when they were up against it ... It's been downhill ever since. ;-) richard
Man with paper with nowhere to sit, unless he shares a bench of course. Very English indeed.
Richard Trim: Some people might suggest you are perceptive .... but I'm not going to oil your ego Mike ;-) richard

Hahaha- nice snapshot- all benches are occupied (oh, it is very German, too!) - unless the Sir is so courageous to ask if he could take a seat next to one of the men- Oh, sorry, I see the benches have separated seats, and I remember a former pic- where would I sit down?- big choice!- perhaps on the bench, second from right?
Richard Trim: You are so observant with all the small detail Philine ...and I love all your analysis. So you like the young man in the dark shirt and tie...ha!
Typically British Richard! I like the crop. Cheers. Richard
Richard Trim: yes the letter box crop seemed essential. richard

Looks like a Monty Python sketch.tongue
Great capture Richard and the crop works well too.
Richard Trim: I wish it had been I would have made a lot of money ... cheers richard
Is there something about "Men only"? Obviously not sharing types either! Well seen.
Richard Trim: 'Men only' ... now aint that so so boring. ;-) richard
This is superb Richard and looks almost staged. You could not have wished for a better scenarion or did you pay them?
Richard Trim: I always have a troupe of lackies to use in my compositions Chad
Three is a good number and I have most successs on a Wednesday.
Cheers richard
The composition and spacing of the people is excellent Richard, you were so lucky to get this arrangement.
Richard Trim: I had to wait and wait and wait Brian ...all of thirty seconds. cheers richard
This is just perfect!!!
Richard Trim: They look like stooges to me Bill ... richard ;-)
Very recorded this well...its a great shot Richard.
Richard Trim: Hmmm Ron .... Are you suggesting that male behaviour is stereo-typical.
;-) Cheers richard
