        My initial look at this photograph gives me a shop sign, a blurred
customer, patterns top and bottom of frame. In short, kind of ordinary and
unspectacular. Why then does this photograph speak to me in a way that makes
me keep looking at it. Maybe it's that old chestnut that triggered my love
of photography in the first place, that freezing of a moment in time,
although other everyday life shots from others, or me for that matter, do
not have the same effect. It is an object lesson of how something can be
greater than the sum of its' parts. Maybe I like it so much because the
reason defies analysis. It's not the first time that your b&w images have
had this effect on me. I wonder if anyone else is getting a similar buzz?
