Mali, bus station... Don t focus on any timetable, forget words like "late" or "on time", just lay on a bench, and try to relax, stop thinking...
Once in the bus driving to my next destination, just before departure, I shot this local man in this perfect "no-time attitude" through the window...
(NB: pic taken with an old Sony DSC camera from 1995)
about Pajaran workshop: I agree, it works! just that I try to avoid to escape from the original size...

You made a good observation and handled it well in an original composition. I think the tighter cropping suggested by pajaran gives a better focus on the man.

an original shot and i like it. It is a good observation and interesting to see a short moment in this unknown man`s life. It is a "honest" shot were we can see it is captured through a window and it works good to me, thanks to the window as a frame. Tfs!
Have a nice evening.

Is it just me, or do some of the best shots come about completely unexpected? :) I've found that when I simply "stop to smell the roses" is when the every day things tend to be most noticeable. Wonderful observance of your surroundings, I bet the vast majority of people would think nothing of this man waiting on the bench, but your keen awareness has paid dividens through the lens.
The visual, combined with your note, leaves a question of intrigue...who is this man, why is he there, and what might he be doing or waiting for?? Love the spontaneous moment captured and realized. Nicely done!

I try always the original to present, this is the first choice of the photographer, but also almost the best choice.
These picture is specially, and more a experimental picture
Composition and presentation make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
