Silly Tuesday snapper.

Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 1 March 2011 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Not the right time to press the shutter?

Caught at "the lights" in South Shields - that's the place where King Street, Ocean Road, Mile End Road, and Fowler Street intersect.

PENTAX K100D 1/125 second F/9.5 ISO 800 82 mm (35mm equiv.)

So, if people complain the photographers invade their privacy by taking shots, can photographers complain that people screw up perfectly good shots by getting in the way?!

@Nigel: No, he was just an interloper making life difficult for the photographer, you will see him again getting in on the act in a couple of days.
