I took this photo just before 5pm today on my way home from work. It is not a fake, those are real people who are not posing for a shot. No one knew I took this photo. I did not get permission from the 2 main subjects or the morons standing around watching them to put this photo on the internet. You can click it to see a larger version. Take a good look at it and try to imagine the gut wrenching pain the girl is feeling, made even worse by the total idiot sat next her who simply will not leave her alone.
The story why I took the photo is simple. It’s about 4.55pm and I’m sat on a bench waiting for the bus and enjoying the afternoon sunshine. Walking along the road are the 2 people in the photo, we’ll call them Mr X and Miss X. They were arguing, well, Miss X was shouting at Mr X to get away from him, to leave her alone. She was crying and trying to push him away. Her voice is loud enough to get my attention. I don’t like bullies and have stood up to more than a few in my life. For the moment I watch them and sup the rest of my Vimto.
