This first picture was taken on a miserable grey day with low cloud.

I normally have a compact camera with me. In case I need to grab a shot very quickly I keep it on the Auto or Programme setting.
Here are 2 images where I saw people approaching posters and realised I could create interesting compositions but had to react instantly. The posters by themselves would not have made such an interesting picture.
In the second image you can see the typical late afternoon winter sunshine on the building in the background.
