From the edition of 10.

The photographers have explained:

"We love the tolerant live and let live feeling you get in UK parks, especially on a sunny day, when people are doing their own thing in public. This bench scene is a perfect example - a couple enjoy a moment of passion while their companion enjoys the feeling sunshine on her face; we're not sure if she closed her eyes closed to block out their ardour or merely to savour a personal moment."
