    Wonderful. Bathed in the warm light, there's almost something theatrical in this perfectly composed array of subjects. The variety of postures and positions, none encroaching on others...the way the eye is lead from the seated woman to the man washing his hair, whose elbow points to the standing young man who appears to be looking at the seated man on the top tier...this is a masterpiece which keeps on giving.

    Once again, Ian Flindt took the words right from my mouth! What an interesting photograph! As Mr Flindt said, there's almost something theatrical in "this perfectly composed array of subjects."
