Everyday People

Another snap of people crossing the road, but this time they all went on red which meant I was well placed (as I was waiting for Mr Green). The guy is even looking the wrong way for the oncoming traffic! I like popping into Muji, mainly for the stationery stuff.

Thinking of a title made me remember the Sly & the Family Stone classic http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgVOR28iG_o

Like the repeated red...coat, stroller, light & storefront.

haha... maybe the guy is european hence looking the wrong way.. resting the camera on the button box (not sure what it's called)?

@andycoleborn No this was a hip shot with a P&S. Held it actually on the hip but again not looking in the direction of the shot. I had to straighten this a fair bit! And I wish I knew what the 'button box' was officially called!

Maybe the woman in red thought the red light meant she was supposed to walk as it looks like her? Then the others would just follow along, as people tend to do.

It might just be that I'm a mum but I'd slap that woman with the stroller for not waiting for the green light lol. Or do the lights work differently there? I could just be clueless haha. Great shot btw! I need to try some 'hip' photos one day though my camera is a bit bulky even though it's a P&S.
