For this part of the Interpretations assignment I had an idea that I would take a picture of an older couple sitting on the sea front sharing a bag of chips or something similar. I primed my parents and planned a walk along the seafront but before we got there I saw these two road sweepers chatting in front of this statue of two Franciscan monks.
I just couldn’t resist whipping my camera out and taking this shot. I really like the way the cleaners are mirroring the pose of the monks and the way their bright uniforms stand out against the austerity of the monk’s robes.
I have chosen to include it in my Interpretations assignment, but it could just as easily have been part of the Decisive Moment assignment.
