I'm in.

I actually took this on Tuesday before I'd read the competition subject, but it matches perfectly.

This old chap was just sitting on a bench watching the world go by. As I only had what's left of my point and shoot with me I asked his permission and took a few shots.

Taken today in Birmingham. Thanks to Jallap for allowing me to take her picture. I don't normally ask perfering to catch the moment from a distance.  :tup:

Good luck all.  ;D
