St. Paul's Cathedral and the Millennium Bridge

The story: When I set up to shoot this photo I really wanted a long exposure to practically eliminate any people on the bridge so the focus would be more on the lines leading to the church. The problem was this guy was sitting here just staring and then it dawned on me, this is a much more interesting photo. I didn't talk to him or give him any instruction, but he sat perfectly still for a full minute while everyone else in the photo buzzed about.
