I snapped this picture downtown, two weeks ago. I wondered if this couple was waiting for a parade or preparing to busk down at the harbour. I waited, but they just moved on - a happy couple out for a Sunday stroll, in their Sunday togs.
Imagine the effort it took to dress up like this. There are so many forms of self-expression, but clothing is one of riskiest, especially in a grey city like ours. (as seen in the man passing by with the stroller)
Forget wearing purple. When I'm an old woman I'm going to wear striped stockings and a red tam.
