I drove past this scene several times on my way home from my Tuesday night volleyball league. It brought back some good memories from my own university days. On the night I finally brought my camera, there was no one out front. I set-up my camera and tripod, mostly out of stubbornness, and resolved to take a shot of the building by itself. As I was doing this, a bus stopped next to me, and dropped off about 2 dozen students, who marched across the street and waited patiently to enter this pub. At that point, all I had to do was focus, compose, and time the shutter release on bulb for 8-10 seconds) to coincide with the breaks in traffic. Of the 4 frames I took, I liked this one the best, because of the slight motion-blur in the line-up and the manager counting his catch. Also, I found out why this line-up always appears on Tuesday nights when I was post-processing this image: The sign to the right of the front door (under the light) describes the pub's "Foxy Tuesday" specials, hence the name.
