Photo of the Day
 
I'm  a street photographer.  I such the streets of chaos and try to capture the beauty within that chaos.  This is a candid picture and not posed.  I was walking up the royal Mile and it started to rain.  People started looking for shelter.  I found this subject hiding in a red phone box and caught them by surprise.  I prefer the viewer to interpret the picture for themselves
