In these two images taken in India, Sangam and Varanasi, the photo pairing is simply based on the hand gesture. Then the left photo is open as it is possible to visualise its environment as the other is closed.
The good weather made me go out recently. I wandered again in the city centre of Bristol. This is actually the only place I walked and photographed in Bristol. I can’t say how many times I have walked by the McDonald’s near Cabot Circus and I can’t say how many times
