It's a quick snapshot of street life taken from a distance, a typical sight somewhere in Hanoi Old Quarter. I was amazed at the very high number of people here who were able to take a quick nap anywhere at anytime despite the lack of comfort and the noise of the city.
This cyclo man was bored out of his brain...
It was just too hot in the afternoon to do anything after hard day at work.....

A nice and amusing street-shot. It has local atmosphere, nice colours and an interesting human "activity". It is certainly a simple photo but you made a good observation and acted a lot quicker than this man would have been able to.

Un peu de repos après une longue course.
Très bonne réactivité et image bien dressée.
Très bonne journée.

You made a nice simple picture but perfectly realized.
It is well thought out and worked.
Congratulations and good day,

Another very candid, yet compelling street scene. I love the rich tones, particularly the wall behind and its textures. The man splayed out on his rickshaw, having a little rest and a yawn really set the scene beautifully. There is a real sense of how hard this man must ordinarily work and the fleeting nature of rest that he gets.
Well done, thanks for sharing and have a great day

I`m not too sure that the gentleman would appreciate his photo being taken as he relaxes after a hard day at the office...However it`s a fine snap shot of every day life in the city.
The colourful cart and tatty surroundings are important elements to an interesting scene.

Funny scene with the lazy moment from the man's day. Well seen, I like it a lot.

J'aime beaucoup cette scène de la vie quotidienne dans cette région du monde. La chaise semble bien confortable et comme il n'y a pas de clients en vue, aussi bien en profiter.

Excellent reportage shot.
Curious scene from street.
I like frame and colors.

A funny capture! A perfect candid snapshot of a man earning his rest after hard work. Reminds me a bit of
this picture, same kind of situation.
rychem (34101) 2014-05-07 8:39
Wow! What a moment, very well spotted and caught, bravo
siudzi (34141) 2014-05-07 12:48
What a funny scene this! Really superb one taken with a perfect sense of the moment! The man was captured so well with natural pose and expression. Very well done! Like it!

Fatigue de fin de journée? Beau moment décisif bien mis en image.
mesutilgim (94062) 2014-05-07 22:23
Life can be boring some times !
A topclass capture taken with perfect timing and pov. Nice framed.
TFS and best regards
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-05-08 0:54
well spotted and masterly caught moment. The man in the riksha is obviously having some leisure time and he seems to be perfectly relaxed or even bored. The wide yawn is funny and makes the picture very amusing. I like the framing in here as well as the contrast of bright red against grey settings.
Thanks for sharing
adramad (44390) 2014-05-08 6:50
Excellent captured the moment with this rickshaw driver, resting in his vehicle while judging by the picture, showing his boredom or fatigue at that moment. A high quality image that defines fine details and textures.
Magnificent colorful tones very effective.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
Very well done. My compliments.
Have a nice day.
All the best.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-05-08 7:27
Tricycles are common sight in the Philippines also. Nice candid shot of this person probably hoping for more fare before his day is over instead of getting bored waiting. This is really a great documentation of the daily life of people and people are very adaptable with their environment. TFS.

It's a great capture of daily life in Vietnam. May be he was waiting for business. It's a good time for making a yawn.
tatadalou (7459) 2014-05-08 9:54
Great capture ! I had seen an exhibit of photos in the town where I live showing Chinese people having a nap everywhere they could. One was lain on his bike ! This one seems to be a much better place ! As usual with your photos, light and sharpness are excellent.

Du coup il me fait bailler :-) un instant capturer au moment je dirais le plus fort ou le monsieur baille, montre sa fatigue au combien je comprend, superbe image, couleurs et netteté
Tout le meilleur
Didi (60586) 2014-05-08 10:54
Well done !
This is a very good decisive moment
Very good frame quality of the scene
I appreciate it

Interesantan trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan umoran vozac rikse, lepe boje.
An interesting moment ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated tired rickshaw driver, beautiful colors.
All the best.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-05-08 13:27
un atteggiamento non del tutto ortodosso ma efficace per un ritratto che si caratterizza per essere diverso dai soliti.
Ottimi sia i colori quanto la nitidezza.
Ciao e buona notte
faubry (35447) 2014-05-08 15:47
very good capture!!! i like this "zen" attitude and texture of the wall;
have a goo day
shreya2000 (2367) 2014-05-09 4:24
Right place at the right time. Very good pic taken by you. We can find this type of chance very less for a pic.
Thanks for sharing.
mcmtanyel (21436) 2014-05-11 22:48
A big yawn, elaborately captured. Beautifully red seat cushions. I sympathize with this fellow, I could fall asleep anywhere.
ourania (43696) 2014-05-13 8:42
an interesting and amusing daily life scene, this capture looks perfect. You framed this candid portrait in an excellent way, the red and the metallic tones stand out superbly against a gritty context that feels wholesome and is curiously appealing. I like very much how nicely the driver is integrated in this context and how comfortable he seems to feel. There's a fine warmth but I also like the contrast created by the soft shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Hello Ambdsudi - I can relate to this, a quick snooze in the middle of the day gives one a burst of energy to continue!
An amusing and well timed street shot!
adores (44911) 2014-06-16 18:11
He must be really tired! A very relaxed posed. The composition is very good and you managed light very well. Good quality shot!
adidas5nb (5743) 2014-07-15 22:21
nice timing on this one and a very good tight frame. even this small frame tells me a lot about hanoi, and about the feel of the place.
