Not "The style" but a "story"
This little girl and her grandma were about to take the train back home, after a day out together.
Grandma would not see her granddaughter back for a few weeks so they wanted to spend their last day together doing fun things. The girl loved going into town with her granny and that's what they did the day I noticed them.
I talked with them for a while and then took my distance. Their train back home was about to arrive very soon. Their time together was coming to an end.

Perhaps not the type of photographs awaited in this challenge, not a catching image like Peter makes them, not a story visible like the ones he shows us... But I wanted to enter this one for Docjpv.

I'm actually aware of the low-story telling character of this entry and I know this might become my lowest score ever.

A fun, and quite interesting shot. I think I would have liked it even better had you corrected the perspective distortion here - it's pretty minor, so it's not quite a leading line (almost though, almost!), so I tend to see it more as a flaw than something which helps the composition.

With that being said - those two are a fantastic pair, and I'm curious about what it is they are looking at.

Perfect relationship, well captured. "Gram, are we late?" "No sunshine, gram will teach you the value of time well."
Wish I knew what the two are chatting about?
Thank you very much for sharing your art with us. 7
