Of course, the sight of a pair who are most definitely not in conversation is equally intriguing. Have they fallen out, or are they about to? If you look closely, you’ll notice that the figure in yellow seems to be on the phone. Could that be the cause of the distance between them?

And if so, is it because of who is on the phone with the figure in yellow, or simply due to the phone being allowed to interrupt what should be a tranquil stroll for two?

What do you think?
