London Street Photography – Frog

What a photograph! This is the sort of photo that photography was invented for. Has anything better been taken for years? The waiter, the diners, oh how I would like to be able to hear their conversation. How beguiling it is to see and yet be unable to share fully in the moment. How hard it is for us to watch such happiness, such wild abandon. And the frog! This is one of the few photographs from central London that features a frog, and what does it tell us except this: photographers, take more frog photos. The presence of a frog elevates the picture from Domenicino to Michelangelo. I have to have it!
