My second pic dedicated to this practice typically male, after that taken in CUBA, I propose this, taken on the gambian beach of Kololi ... just for fun..
UN RAPIDO CONTROLLO 2
La mia seconda foto dedicata a questa usanza tipicamente maschile,dopo quella scattata a CUBA,vi propongo questa,scattata sulla spiaggia gambiana di Kololi...giusto per sorridere un poco...

Controllo o prurito dovuto a pestilenziali piattole? This is the question...questo è l'amletico problema! Certo è che tu sei un paparazzo rapido come la folgore! Sei avessi immortalato un divo del cinema in un simile frangente, avresti fatto quattrini a palate...vai a Hollywood e appostati, no?
carlo62 (54958) 2013-05-18 15:39
non ti sfugge proprio niente....
La foto va comunque al di la del gesto, che la rende simpatica, è ben composta e con bei colori, la bandiera rossa è ben posizionata e bla bla bla....
Sei un gran curioso ;)

in peru and Bolivia it is usual to see men urinating in the public areas, even near women.. here we have a touch of humor. despite this the image has a soft fog in the air and a nice light. TFS.

Ha, Ha, Luciano, this is the more grown-up version! I suppose a quick check is always reassuring! I think the man on the left is curious about your photography!
A very good daily life scene ... since this seems to be a common occurrence.
Besides the two very interesting figures, I do like the b/g details which set the context for the shot.
Have a great Sunday,
tyro (26142) 2013-05-18 18:03
Ciao caro Luciano,
Well, you do have to check, don't you? Nothing wrong with checking from time to time - especially first thing in the morning when you wake up! But women must be so jealous - what can they do and what do they scratch? Hee, hee.
This is a brilliant photograph - well seen and very well taken too. The fellow on the left doesn't seem too happy having his photograph taken but the guy on the right is totally engossed in "checking" things out and doesn't appear too bothered.
Lovely light and colours, a fine interesting background, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

On dirait qu'il souffle le sable se soulève sueprbe sur la plage ces beaux jeunes homme avec en fond ce graphisme e de chapeau d'ombrelles de paille quelle compo.
Bravo et amitié
dkmurphys (64543) 2013-05-18 21:41
Funny scene, what can I say, it's a normal thing after all. I like the beach and the colors, well taken.
JFS (32459) 2013-05-18 23:42
The heat produces such habits...Curious shot Luciano, I like the composition and the atmosphere I can feel the heat too...
emka (106722) 2013-05-18 23:47
ciao Luciano, You are quite a paparazzi to show such moments ;). I have never observed it. Funny you notice it...
I like this view from Gambia, with the nice huts and well placed the red accent.
Silvio1953 (152947) 2013-05-19 0:47
Ciao Luciano, beccato in piena azione, simpatica, ottima nitidezza e bei colori, bravo, buona Domenica e prepara il canotto, ciao Silvio
mjw364 (1466) 2013-05-19 1:19
I like the humour of this shot! I don't agree with John though about what women have to check - penis envy is not something women have ever suffered from I have found! Besides we can check for them :)
Nice scene - you can feel the hear with the dust rising in the BG.
ikeharel (78289) 2013-05-19 1:25
Well Luciano, you couldn't describ this better...
Nice taken the beach scenery, this guy happend to be in your pic. on time taken, but the surrounding are also with great interest.
papagolf21 (109276) 2013-05-19 1:52
Bonjour, cher Luciano,
Réactivité exemplaire ! J'observe surtout l'environnement et le vent chaud qui souffle sur une palmeraie en arrière-plan. Ici, c'est la pluie qui s'amuse à faire pleurer le soleil.
Très bonne journée.
ChrisJ (117825) 2013-05-19 2:27
A good daily life scene from this Gambian beach with excellent side lighting from the right and superb sharpness and colour saturation. I like the repetition of the wavy thatched huts and umbrellas along the shoreline in the bg. The red flag contrasts well against the blue banana tube boat. Tfs!
snunney (106501) 2013-05-19 3:38
A fine capture of this humorous opportunity, we've all been there though maybe not quite so openly:-) A colourful (in every way) daily life capture with lots of interest in the background as well.
timecapturer (49288) 2013-05-19 3:38
well it does not get more original than this and a good everyday image of something that all men can identify with. I admire your bravery and assume this shot was on maximum zoom!!!
Enjoy a peaceful Sunday - Brian.
Gigidusud (21247) 2013-05-19 4:10
Una scena di vita quotidiana divertante ben catturata.He heheh!Complimenti!
Ti auguro una bella domenica.
jacquest (19047) 2013-05-19 4:48
This is a universal gesture that you are presenting. For some men, it is not often, for others it became a habit and some are not that quick about it. Excellent scene with the heat showing by this light fog. The red flag adds a nice touch (no pun intended) of color.
Noel_Byrne (33628) 2013-05-19 4:51
An amusing title, and the perfect capture to go with it. So many times do we see people doing this! A new habit in some parts of Dublin is young men walking around with their hands actually jammed down inside their trousers.
You got great colours in the scene too, and very nice light. That beach looks like a beautiful place.
All the best
Sergiom (88277) 2013-05-19 5:22
Quand cela pique...on gratte. Ici on ne sent aucune gène et le mouvement est très naturel et assumé. Peut-être veut-il faire le spectacle et exposer ses qualités.
Miguel82 (27752) 2013-05-19 5:30
So funny shot Luciano, I remember without reading the note your picture from Cuba!
I like this authentic capture
Excellent sharpness, fine colors and exposition
Have a good week end
rogerl (1632) 2013-05-19 5:39
Luciano, funny shot, well-framed. Besides the men themselves, I like the different kinds of shelters in the colorful background. Thanks.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-05-19 6:44
haha,that´s really good:)you had not only good eye and reflex,but also good the camera was ready to shot this scene.Really funny outcome,especially with combination with the title given:)
Excellent example how to make something original and funny from at the first sight quite common scene.
Great shot my friend!
Have a nice sunday
berek (50508) 2013-05-19 7:08
related material in place. he he. A very nice photograph of everyday life from Gambia
pajaran (65746) 2013-05-19 7:17

bayno (18344) 2013-05-19 9:25
Ciao Luciano, hai colto perfettamente l'attimo...non è proprio un ottima usanza ma sorvoliamo ;)ottima invece la riuscita del tuo scatto, nitida e con bei colori, la luce inoltre era molto bella e ha ben contribuito alla riiuscita...buona serata,
agjika (3177) 2013-05-19 10:45
He is not doing it to you is he?! Maybe he thought that would stop you from taking the picture!
Great shot I like the parasols
holmertz (59118) 2013-05-19 11:02
I would have hesitated to take a picture of these guys. It doesn't look entirely safe. In any case it's a memorable photo and certainly a decisive moment too. I also like the fairly cheap touristic atmosphere and the background screen of tropical trees.
ourania (51079) 2013-05-19 14:39
sicuramente eri molto lontano dai due amici che camminano sulla spiaggia credendo di essere soli ed inosservati. La scena e' assolutamente naturale in tutti i sensi. Mi piace tanto il quadro pieno di contesto e colori, la profondita' ed il posizionamento diagonale dei ragazzi in contrasto con la parte superiore della spiaggia. La gestione di luce e contrasti e' magnifica, l' atmosfera calda e rilassante e' molto gradevole. Era veramente difficile fare delle osservazioni per il resto del quadro:)Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona settimana,
Urs (14082) 2013-05-20 0:18
Two typically African lanky guys walking along the beach setting a bold contrast to the almost white sand. Good metering to get some details in their dark faces. Well done
BTW I like to shoot backlight, once you know how to make it works, you always try to do it again. Just avoid sky and sun, then with the right metering, it will work
Oceania (5202) 2013-05-20 7:35
These two guys are so strong; they can play basketball for NBA...-:)
Graal (103038) 2013-05-20 10:19
interesting view of beach and two walkers. Good shot. Fine composition with the interesting elements in BG. Well done photo and presentation here.
Have a nice evening.
pierrefonds (71117) 2013-05-20 15:37
Tu as bien saisi cette pratique indiscrète de l'homme envers sa personne. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des vêtements de ces hommes sur la plage. La scène à l'arrière-plan donne de la vie à l'image. Bonne soirée.
jcpix (13948) 2013-05-20 17:04
Haha...right moment at the right time, or did you see this coming? :) What a great and humorous shot! This looks to have been taken from a distance, which I'm sure was in your best interest..no guy wants to be caught doing what...well, guys do! For what I'm guessing was a quick shot to avoid any real problems with these two, you actually composed and came up with a fine result. The moment was certainly captured to perfection, and the detail and color is well displayed. Quick reaction and a good eye to catch this moment taking place. Bravo! Keep up the good work. lol
All the best,
chrisvek (7001) 2013-05-20 19:09
Hahaha!That's a great timing.Very good timing.Nice composition,so unique with a very big sense of humour.Great POV and framework.Well done!
Have a nice day
mohammad_H (10072) 2013-05-21 3:16
Sandy beach with a parasol made of bamboo, beautiful views, and take the shot, snapshot of the man, you have to record the image look sharp
best wishes for you
dip (23892) 2013-05-21 8:52
ha,ha,excellent timing! :)
very nice capture of the scene,very good quality as well,
williewhistler (16492) 2013-05-21 11:20
Hello Luciano, a very humorous beach scene that captures a moment in time perfectly.
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-05-22 15:25
I find myself doing that sometimes but I try to be discreet about it. Good timing and capture with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
Cricri (125832) 2013-05-22 21:49
Deux grand beau mec dans un joli décor de la plage aux coté exotique....bizarre leurs façon de mettre la main a leur "pantalon" comme celle sur le lien, c'est peut être typique du pays :-))
jjcordier (79297) 2013-05-22 23:12
C'est ce qu'on appelle du moment décisif, tout doit être bien en place avant la balade sur la plage! Une photo amusante et de qualité.
kato (11630) 2013-05-28 1:27
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, it's impressive to Gambian beach with ground dust, the parasol of straw and coconut trees of backdrop. It's interesting thattThe residents here are wearing T-shirt and trousers of original color, too. It looks like they are relax.
adores (46363) 2013-05-28 18:22
Surely a diferente photo of Gambia:)! A funny and real daily scene!and a very good portrait with an interesting background. The pose of one and the serious expression of the other really make the photo. Well captured!
ciakgiak (30433) 2013-05-30 8:52
qualità indiscutibile e soggetti molto accattivanti. Ottima la scelta del momento dello scatto!!! Congrats!
Fis2 (106364) 2013-06-01 0:12
Curious place, curious scene.
Good frame and colors.
Have a nice weekend
delpeoples (59774) 2013-06-13 23:59
Hahahaha marronnamia come forte! Forse lui ha bisogno delle due mani! Hehehehe, sono una monella, ma tu....un gran bel momento decisivo. Non posso fermare il ridere.
nikkitta (17068) 2013-07-18 13:01
Never saw that "quick check" quite a funny one, yes and lots of men urinating in the streets, also in Argentina
What I like of this capture is the kind of fog that I suppose comes from the sand, it gives a golden tone at all the photo
Congrats and buonasera
