Passers By

passers byFrom the window that I’m looking through I get to see people pass by just for an instant but each individual seems so distinctive that I think ‘this time I’ve got it’ but then I start thinking was his hat blue or was that his sweat shirt? What was the grey lady wearing on her feet? Was the strider with the haversack wearing some kind of waistcoat or body warmer?

passers bymanAs I said the other day, the more I practice doing this, the better my memory should become not just for the telling details but also for overall shape and character of each figure.

Perhaps I should find a cafe table overlooking a precinct and have a coffee morning drawing the crowds.
