I've still got an enormous amount of photos to go through from recent trips to Hong Kong and Barcelona, but here are a few more that I PPed recently. They were taken at different times and places, but I thought they'd make a nice set.

Some of you have already commented on the first couple on Flickr, thanks, it's much appreciated.

I really like this set! The captions really make you take a second look.

Thank you asnow, MA and aubintbay!

Aubintbay glad you appreciate the captions, I spend a minute or two on each photo I share trying to come up with something interesting/amusing and hopefully relevant. A little foible of mine :D

I really like this set too. You've found some interesting backgrounds and some nice shots to go with them. :)

This is an AWESOMELY cohesive set - VERY well done, very well thought out :highfive: :highfive:

OFF TOPIC - Just wanted to say that sets of images are always good but when each photo in the set works together with similar subject matter, the whole set becomes much more impressive.

It's very rare to see the backgrounds featured as prominently as the foreground in this way, refreshing change!

I might want to blog this post, can I?

As Marko said, love the interactions of the foreground/background, making them both an actual subject relative to each other. Very nicely captured on all, and very fresh thinking.

Awesome set, well seen and executed. I'd sure hate to have to judge these for a winner! If I had to choose though, I'd go with "Lifestyle differences":thumbup: Great stuff!!
