communication in the circle

oh how i wish i hadn't chopped off the top circle on the background building but you can't win 'em all. cavendish square has a public garden in the middle, unlike some london squares where the central green spaces are strictly private. somehow this lady on her mobile made me think of wallis simpson
I can see and understand Wallis - a great edit.

Nice catch and it works well in B&W. I see what you mean about the circle although I might be tempted to crop in tighter to put more emphasis on the women.

Oh, she does - what my picture of her remembers! Nice to know this garden can be shared!

I like the vintage feel of the black and white- definitely see your historic reference and totally agree with Richard's crop suggestion. Great shot!

Brilliantly captured in the middle of the circle of the modern art thingy. I agree with Richard Brown (above) though.

Nicely composed, especially on the fly. I share your pain about chopping off the circle, although it really doesn't hurt the image. She does look like Wallis Simpson. :)

I spent a long time looking at this last night - and was so tired, I couldnt think of anything to say. But I found the image very compelling. I ended up wondering who would have walked the streets and the park in Cavendish Square and found another trouble love story that belongs here - that of Princess Amelia. See - https://janeaustenslondon.com/2016/09/01/the-story-of-a-square-1-cavendish-square/

Anyhow, that is all by the by. Your circles, inhabited by the wallis simpson character, make a great composition - with or without the circle on the building. But I agree with you - it would have been good to have the whole circle. Cant have everything!

@joysabin @rjb71 @maggiemae @northy @joemuli @olivetreeann @365karly1 @haskar @lyndamcg @jon_lip @domenicododaro @rosiekerr oh wow thank you so much for your interaction with this image. i'm amused that wallis simpson made sense to some of you. i also very much like the cropped version - thanks richard, and others who agreed with the notion. only difficulty is i wanted wallis on a third, and that's quite tricky if it's cropped ...
@helenhall thanks so much helen for that info - so interesting :)
