  1. I would not dare to upset him, with that knife in his hand :). Very nicely caught moment.

      I agree with sifrim. Quite a ‘transportational’ shot – feel like I’m there, looking in.

      • I kinda tried to pull the viewer into the moment, so thanks a lot mj, glad to hear it worked.

    • Yeah, and the expression on his face looks pretty damn serious! Thanks sifrim.

  2. Strange and excellent picture, JP – made even stranger by the butcher’s stance and expression, and by the tartan umbarella in the umbarella stand! Adrian

    • Yeah, and the woman’s smiling, which makes it all a bit ambiguous I think. You know the funny thing is that the tartan umbrella caught my eye in the first place, and not the whole set up with the butcher, which I found quite intriguing because it raises the question of your own eye, and what draws it.

      Btw, I meant to ask you, when are we going to get more of those Hemingway(esque) shots of yours, as I think they are simply brilliant.

      • I can only remember posting one photo that you thought Hemingwayesque – that one of your’s truly!!! I’m not sure I have any more but I’ll look. Getting the time to do things is the problem – a fulltime job sure eats a hole out of the day! What do you think of the wedding reception legs? Adrian

    Great shot here, the colours are great, the reds and whites that run throughout the picture are really striking. I think your candid shots are real interesting. Keep up the street photography, I like it!

    • Thanks so much for the comments and the compliment. Yeah, I really do like the street photography, but I’m still very much learning as I go along, enjoying it immensely though!

  4. I love his expression! Great colors too

    • Yeah, that’s what caught my eye as well, the contrast in his expression and the woman (his wife?) next to him. Thanks so much for the cool compliment.
