Many thanks indeed for choosing one of my photos - out of a very good range of choices. Typically, one of those photos taken in a few seconds on the spur of the moment. (It's a bagpiper though :))

A lot of good -- dare I say "ironic" -- images to choose from, Alex. Not an easy decision for you, I'm sure.

 

Thanks very much for including one of my offerings.

It was certainly tough to choose, a tougher task than it at first appears.

It's definitely fun though and kind of suspenseful now watching the poll results. 🙂

I'm glad what I wrote made sense to you. You did it perfectly anyway.

I'm the only one so far who has voted for Choice 3 TeeCee. I really like that spontaneous, documentary aesthetic with lots of angles and action, and the duo-tone color palette! 😎

Many thanks Kristin!  HMV were closing lots of stores, I just walked passed, realised they were taking down the sign etc. The guy in the pix was NOT happy, and in about frame 6, he shot me the eeeerrrm, "HM   V" sign. Put out for Live News, but not picked up.
Thanks again, I voted for Wim, love the umbrella on a riverboat!

It looks kind of like a frame from a gritty 70's era film, like the French Connection. 😎

Last day (or less) to cast votes for this challenge. Can the runaway leader be overtaken at the last moment?

Wow! I didn't expect that. Thanks, everyone.

Well done John! Definitely an ironic (and sad) photo.
