This is excellent. One of your best.
Chris: Taken yesterday rather than sitting fermenting in the bowels of the system for months
All smiles.... nice...
Chris: You've got to be happy in Bath - or else Larry!

They do seem to be enjoying themselves, once again a great real moment capture
Chris: Just a fleeting moment in a long day Robbyne..
I love how everyone's having fun! I'd take that green jacket!
Chris: And you would look good in it too
great shot Chris, with the smiles and poses, one could make out a story unfolding here.
Chris: Indeed so Ayush: one could have great pleasure inventing a tale to go with this
Perfect title for this, Chris! They clearly loved having your attention. smile
Chris: They didn't see me Ginnie; I was disguised as a pile of suitcases

You caught the moment here. Very cheerful picture. The joy shows in this picture, I hope she bought the green jacket.
Chris: I hope she did too Astrid but we will never know

Oh yes, especially in Bath - a funny catch at the right moment!
Chris: I am of the persuasion that Shakespeare had a real point about the world being a stage, and ourselves actors in the unfolding drama/comedy Philine

This shopping drama will run and run...

.... always popular. Well seen Chris.
Chris: Thank you Mike: getting a shot like this makes all that trawling around rather satisfying

Fascinating to see the 'other' character in the mirror Tiff, reminds me of the 'Arnolfini marriage'
Chris: He could be a number of things Chad but I thought of him rather in terms of conscience or a form of semi-detatched judgement perhaps
no doubt, as long as the bar is open!!
Chris: No alcohol was partaken in the making of this mini-drama JC

I like your angle here, catching the reflection of the "model" and of someone else. Are they laughing because that funny chap with his camera have turned up again?
Chris: They didn't see me Alan: I was disguised as a pile of second hand suitcases

Yes, you are so right- I hope we are not in the phase of 'second childishness' yet...

All the World's a Stage

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

William Shakespeare
Chris: Just imagine being able to compose thus Philine..

Ole Tiffo's got 'em laughing...must have trotted out a 50's howler...
Chris: I hope I am not being accused of approaching my dotage!
Very fitting: providing some cheer for a wet Monday morning wink
Chris: Wonderful aren't they Martin
And you can find fun and a smile if you share yours.
Chris: Quite so Mary

... and the pub an excellent replay! Great pic.
Chris: Merely a scene from life's drama Louis..
A fine happy image Chris!
Chris: Thank you Ronky
Nice shot and interaction, he's a pro with the mirror, avoiding her bum, and hence the obvious question smile
Chris: Indeed so John: the eternal female enquiry..

A great candid shot Chris
Chris: I think I was in the right place at the right time Anne
And if it wasn't, we'd make it so!
Chris: Of course we would: it's in our nature
A jolly good fit - sold to the lady I hope.
Chris: I hope so too Martin: thank you
What a load of apparent fun going on. I note the Green Park sign I guess this must be at the old station.
Chris: It is indeed Brian, the northern terminus of the lamented S&DJR
