I noticed this young lady in a café on the Strand, who had probably just come from work. She looked so lonely and I felt a bit sad for her, but luckily she had only been daydreaming while waiting for her fiancé, who arrived shortly after.

Beautiful!

I really like the almost abstract setting with the more realistic figure. It does project a feeling of loneliness. Glad it had a happy ending!

Really like the way you have treated the background. Feels like misted up windows, and create that sense of isolation. Lovely

Thank you all very much for your kind comments! Elizabeth - that's exactly what it was: misted up windows!
