p.s.
...when I gave the title to this shot, I only followed the cue from the title of the book in the hands of the boy, and thought that having "ice men" sitting next to him was too hilarious and serendipitous to pass by. Only later I decided to look what (who) the book was about... scary stuff!

Terrific capture - serendipitous in more ways than one, I think. Congratulations on the HM.

Excellent candid, regarding the content of the book this matches the challenge to 100% and had deserved a ribbon

I am quite fond of this type of candid. Unawares. Nicely done.
I could only read the first few paragraphs of your link...gruesome.

Brent,you're absolutely right: I had taken a few other shots with a busy street behind, and they were just not working... and then the bus came :)

Congrats Lev! And taken barely a stones throw away from my office too :D

I'll give you credit for setting this up intentionally, but I have shot in that park in the same direction before and the background can get quite messy. That articulated bus was very fortunate in the background to keep the focus on your subject. So glad this did well for you.

Ha - love it. Seems so out of character to be reading. But probably covers more books than I do.
