    I took a picture of a street the other dayand noticed this chap in the distance. So i cropped the rest of the photo out and just had him on his own.

    It just reminds me of the sixties for some reason and i cant figure out why! Does it remind anybody else?

    From this distance, I'd say it might be the clothes - the pants are cut narrowly. Bell-bottoms aside for the moment, think of those 60's straight-cut suits. ;)

    That simple black style, combined with a very anonymous architecture in the background, sets the 60's tone for me - and it helps that the image is B&W.

    It's a nifty little shot, John. :thumbup: Not Abbey Road for me, though - there's no gravedigger bringing up the rear, and that image was shot in color! :lol:
