Untitled by Siegfried Hansen

2007 visit to London.. I was just starting my street photo tour and I was sitting in a McDonald’s restaurant. I drank my coffee and looked outside of the window. I saw the advertisement in the left side of the picture that inspired me, because I saw immediately the white points of the windows and quickly I decided to wait for the constellation that three or four people have the white point on there shoulder. Luck was, that on the other side was a subway station and many people came outside. So I just sat there in front of the window and drank my coffee and waited for the right timing.

    Amazing, how long did you take to drink your coffe?I think having four people in the same moment head covered by the circles It could take 1 hour(with the eye kept in the viewfinder)!
