Hi Brian,

Excellent excellent work! Well done my far off friend across the sea.

Having shot at Speakers corner a few times it's such an incredible wealth of 
humanity one can hardly go wrong shooting people and as I found most do not 
seem to mind having their pictures taken simply because I think they expect 
it and if they don't have their pictures taken they may feel they're not 
getting their message out.

The most interesting block of photographs I've ever seen from there is right 
here. The series in silhouette shot from the back of the speaker against the 
sky!  Just smashing good picture taking simply because 99% of those with 
cameras who shoot there would never think to do what you've done.   It sure 
makes for a powerful feeling.  Well done.

That's the difference between looking at what's there compared to the far 
more important part of.... "SEEING"  what's there!

Good on you.
