Closer than you think

Where's Superman? Why, he's lying right next to them.

Nervous

Is what I'd be laying face first in front of that huge "faucet" like the man on the left. I mean, what if?

Lookout

I thought at first the soldier and the woman with the handbag in the background were standing on top of a shed, but now I see they must be on a balcony attached to the building. Love the juxtaposition between those two, looking away from each other, with the girls in the foreground facing each other - excellent composition.

120 or 620 roll?

The gal behind the fence is holding a nice twin lens reflex. Not the detail I would have focused on in younger years!
