"enjoying the long day"

Another long day, maybe, but this stylish stall-keeper seemed to be enjoying it!:-)

FUJIFILM X-M1 1/240 second F/1.8 ISO 200 53 mm (35mm equiv.)

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

I, too, find myself starting to sway a little when wearing the x-ray specs !

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

He seems to be a professional for getting the good pose when facing the glance of a lens.
Excellent !

@Gérard Beullac: I'm not too sure if he saw me photographing at all especially when the attractive young lady was approaching... anyway I was just captured by his pose and mood!:-) Thanks!

Anna.C from LA ROCHELLE, France

I like his elegant and relaxed attitude ! love the reflection in his large sun glasses and your dynamic framing ! enjoy your long day, too, dear Hugo ))

Despite the age in his hands he looks rather young in his face. I love the reflections you've caught in his shades too and I like the out of focus woman to the left. Another great one Hugo!

Kate from EXETER, United Kingdom

Young at heart! I love your observation here Hugo.

Wonderful portrait of this gentleman. He seems to be eyeing the young lady walking by! And why not! A great street scene!

Francisco Romero from Carbajal de la Legua, Spain

This is a fantastic capture! What an expression at the sight of the lady...Brilliant.

Just love how sexy the girl must be in the suggestion your framing proposes, reflected in the guys eyes of sunglasses. Ha, they are stopped in their breathing by the beautiful Lady. The younger man seems so intense (looking not in her eyes it seems ;) and the older one is so much elegant and casual in his attitude of young boy charming the charm herself walking to him as if he were young again himself or if Time does not exist anymore. The way he holds his thumb softly tight against his forefinger is a detail I savor so much !

He could stand there all day and enjoy the view! A great study in human nature.

Arr Day from montréal, Canada

Perfect character ! I like people who stand out and assume it (and I like other people too - just to be sure). I like the way the picture tilts, it accentuates the open shirt. And the reason of his glance entering the picture is great too.

Looks like he's dressed like some young tough out of a gangster movie. Kind of cool
