The door was closed
So I pressed my nose
Against your cold clear glass
And this photographer bloke
thought it a joke
to take a picture of my ass
But I didn't mind
I knew he was not blind to the story of where I begin
Behind his lens he is just like me, on the outside looking in.

I think it's a wonderful photo :) The moment you captured gives us plenty of room for imagination and thought. Excellent shot.
I also like the note :)

Not often that we hear you quoting the great romantic poets in your notes, but the words of Wordsworth - or was it Lord Tennyson? - befit this candid photograph perfectly.
I was considering posting a picture almost exactly the same as this but yours is so very much better than mine: I didn't manage to include the light coming in through the distant windows and that really does add depth to the image as well as adding to the mystery of what, exactly, might be hiding in the darker corners of that room behind the glass of the window. Nice reflections of sky in the windows too.
Very well seen and taken with lovely vibrant colours, good composition and exquisite detail and sharpness.
P.S. Mais qui est l'étranger? Est-ce Claude?

Technically this is a superb photo a excellent composition, colors and resolution. Beyond that, this is and endearing quality, in the very best tradition of a Norman Rockwell illustration. Rockwell, virtually a household name in decades past was an American illustrator. In the UK you may know him, but it was this type of artwork that Rockwell is always associated with.

Get in there!
I think we all captured this little lad or his sister but I bet there are none better than this! The mood is entrancing! I really like the fact that you captured the windows beyond; that takes the view right through the building and extends what or who he could be looking for.
Must meet the poet sometime, before he gets captured and deported to the colonies!

nice the snapshot with the little boy to try to see in the interior of the room drom the window.I like the good placement of his body in the frame as the perfect light and colour management of the image.

This is an excellently taken image. Not much to say, simply superb.

We've both been curious little boys...
Well seen moment, who knows what kind of treasures could be found in that dark building! And the note is superb!

C'est une très belle photo, bonne observation.
un gros plan réussi, avec une très belle qualité de lumière et des couleurs.
Un beau moment de vie, avec de l'humour.

Did you write the poem Mike? I love it and it's a perfect note for this shot. I really like this candid shot of the small boy, it's not something I would immediately say was your genre but you have done a great job here. I especially like the processing which has a slight low-key look.
