I love this picture. I've seen it several times at a Drs office I go to.
Today I googled it, and it is by J A Hampton and is in the Hyde Park, London series from the 1930's.
I really want to know the story behind this picture, if there is one.
Was this planned? Was this an impromptu jump? Did he make it? Where was he going? What is in his hand? What is on the other side?
Really, I don't know what it is about the picture that captivates me so much and makes me need to know more details.
Maybe its the fact that this guy was willing to take the chance and just do get to his destination quicker, without having to go the long way around.
Whatever the facts are, I like this picture and want to know more.
Good job J A Hampton.
