Wow! I really love this.... both holding their cell phones while holding each other - and that "Bansky"-ish mural in the background!!
Chris: It's a real Banksy in Bristol Elizabeth and their pose is homage to another famous example, "The mobile lovers"

We were there!!!! And what a great scene... I wonder what is in the suitcase she is standing on, they they dress up in the street grin.... and I know this is a real one.... the Banksy.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banksy
Chris: They were being photographed by somebody else Astrid, I think the box is to get her to the right height

Love this image, Chris...one of your best!

I did enjoy it when you took me to this place, too!
Chris: I am obliged to you Ray, I suspect if I knew where to look I'd find Bristol full of Banksys
This looks like a painting, Chris...TWO paintings, that is. It also reminds me of those YouTubes about couples in bed with their iPhones, totally missing out on their lives...so close but so far! Well done.
Chris: Thank you kindly Ginnie

Perhaps she can't reach to kiss him unless she stands on her case
Chris: I think kissing is out of the question for mobile lovers Lisl..

First I thought we are in Bath at the Jane Austen Festival, but now I see we are in Banksy's Bristol. A wonderful photo!
Chris: As you can image Philine when I saw these two posing in front of the mural I just had to act
Love this. Drama, drama, undrama.
Chris: And you can thank Banksy for all of that Mary
It's selfie mania Tiff.
Chris: And I took the picture myself Chad

Ahh.. the crazies of Bath have now migrated to Bristol, I see. I wonder why she is stood on a suitcase.
Chris: Err..no idea
Like two paintings ( well, one is a painting ) Well caught, Chris.
Chris: Couldn't resist it Frank

Proof that a time machine exists somewhere. The cell phone salesman slipped through and quickly sold two wonder devices to this couple in love. She is standing on his samples case, trying to figure out what to do with the device. He thinks it is some kind of a mirror.
Chris: They would have been encased in bafflement Louis. And some of us are just that anyway when trying to fathom the depths of smartphones..
It's a bit like something out of Back to the Future.
Chris: Yes indeed it is Brian
...to the iPhone?
Chris: To Banksy Tom
A lot going on here...
Chris: And all thanks to Banksy Larry
