Saw this city Gent in the middle of a pedestrian crossing on his mobile phone.
Their are a few business men who go to work dressed in their pin-stripped suits and finished off with a Bowler hat and Umbrella.

Hi Iain. True to the title, except I cannot hear his voice(is it loud?) and somehow the shoes don't fit(in my humble opinion.)otherwise a nice capture on this sunny day. Regards. Klaudio.

Very nice capture of this typical British gentleman busy on his handy !
Good pov and layout and perfect timing.
His left hand says "what's going on now" !
TFS and best regards

Indeed, there aren't many of these about nowadays. But like Klaudio, his outfit does not seem to ring true; the suit is a bit on the loud side and the shoes seem somewhat ungamely; not what you expect to see on the 7.50! Still, he makes a fine capture with his mobile and furled up umbrella. Well composed, with good light and colours and excellent clarity.
Bright and sunny here again today, maximum of 19. Hope you are doing well as well.

very nice moment captured, the man is dressed like in old time movies. I love your composition with his shade making an accent in the foreground.

Nice portrait of the nattily dressed gentleman complete with his full length shadow. His choice of shoes could have been better :-)Perfect placement of the subject in the frame. A well lit and bright image with a green backdrop. Thanks for sharing.
P.S. Wish you all the best for your trip to India. I hope you enjoy your stay over here.

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i gospodin u radnom odelu, lepe boje.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak, postali smo zavisnici mobilnih telefona.
Lep trenutak sa senkom.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.
Nice view and a second ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, nice place and Mr. shown in work clothes, beautiful colors.

A nice moment with shadow.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best.

How typical, Iain, with a fine outfit especially the hat.
Just his shoes not so matching...
Nicely captured the moment, the yellow box is in good contrast and well added to the scene.
Nice green park accross, also an interesting subject added on.

Hello Iain - I love this candid shot. To me it has something of the absurd about it.... a Monty Python sketch perhaps?
Nicely spotted and great fun

What a classy composition of a man where two worlds collide with each other. The man in his perfect suit, umbrella and bowler hat seems to come from a past long gone, while his smart phone brings him right up in our times.
Great play of shadows to his feets as well.
have a great evening

Except for the modern shoes, this could be a scene from Mary Poppins. Actually, a closer look reveals that the fellow's head is shaved, which would be a no-no for Mr. Banks. Well seen and exquisitely rendered.
