The photographers have explained:

"This couple represent a perfect British cliché. We love the way they made themselves so at home, wedged symmetrically between two parked cars in a Cornish beauty spot, accessorised with pages from the Financial Times and an M & S bag. We wonder if they noticed the deer grazing in the neighbouring field."
