Their inability to object to my photo-taking? Their passivity? I’ve never really figured it out and perhaps it’s better not to know. See also blog post (opens in new window): Somewhat surreal

One from way back. This picture taken in 1967 was made in Oxford Street, London. One can't deny the Freudian overtones.
