This man was sitting on his little plastic chair, cleaning his toes, drinking tea, watching everything. The wall is maybe 100meters long with nothing else than a sidewalk. I waited till someone passed to make the shot. I took the scene from different angles, but there was another bicycle on the right side which was messing up my framing.

The contrast between the two characters makes the shot.

Being a sucker for brick walls, this image immediately grabbed my attention. Okay, and now to absorb the story being offered. Are they really so disconnected? Is the half-fallen bicycle testament to such a reading? The composition is unusual but winning. The atmosphere seems hyper-realistic. Works well on several levels.

Fabulous image. I SO wish the bake wasn't in the shot.

Think the shot is about the old guy
