I wanted to call this picture "Learning about the world through photography", using the motto of TrekEarth, but that was a few letters too long for the system.
This is from the pedestrian street Knyaz Aleksander in the centre of Plovdiv. During my visit to the city there was an open air exhibition of a Bulgarian photographer's pictures from India. I should have memorized the photographer's name but unfortunately I didn't, which I regret.

the title is really nice! Excellently composed impression of this wonderful scene. It is the bold perspective that makes the image very interesting. My compliments!

What a great way to display an exhibition being outdoors in a pedestrian area. You have composed the shot well with the photos on the diagonal and the man showing great interest in the work. A great piece of street photographt.
Kind Regards, Ann

Very interesting to watch several pictures in one upload. I guess what the man here is thinking; "pleasant composition and a good eye-catching red shirt" or maybe "lots of eye-catching red clothes along a road that curves elegantly in the picture" or maybe he is thinking "I have seen a lot of better pictures on TE". Whatever, this is quite a good contribution.

What a fascinating picture! And what an interesting note too - I've just spent the last 15 minutes "Googling" to see if I can find anything about Bulgarian photographers taking pictures in India - all to no avail, I'm afraid.
A fine composition, the man's gaze drawing our eyes into the nearest picture, then (in the same diagonal line) off to the next one, then the next, also following the line of the pavement and the buildings. The fine bright colours in the photographs contrast well with the duller colours of the street scene, the very same way that the colours of the subjects in the photographs contrast with the duller clothing of the passers-by in the street.
A very thoughtful image, well seen and well taken.

Hello Gert. The title is well chosen - in the spirit of TE. Such images are used for education. Before people read something, they first look at the pictures. Well observed and skillfully realized. Rgds wolfgang.

Sympatic title very well selected for this original shot. POV well selected too with the man and the coloured posters. The details of these posters are too well collected. NI like the glance of the lady on the right.

Good afternoon Gert
I read the picture this way:
the lady at right is looking at the man who is facing in a cool mood 2 big colorfull pictures of kids. Good daily shot

An excellent photo. Exceptional clarity and detail. The man is perfectly positioned and the diagnol lines adds dynamics to the scene. I have difficulties to make up my mind what I thing of the inclusion of the lady to the right. On the hand side she takes away attention from the man that is the main subject, but on the other hand it makes the scene more vivid. TFS and have a nice evening.

Ciao dear Gert,
beautiful and interesting image that shows how important is the photography, a formidable way to discover the world and the cultures of the peoples. Your image is very meaningful, captured with spontaneity and naturalness. Also excellent the photo quality. Congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Wednesday!

I also have spent awhile google searching in the hope of finding details of the Bulgarian photographer - but also to no avail. The only relevant link is this photo - seems as though the exhibition was not well promoted. In fact you are the sole promoter! Photos within a photo. I am wondering what the thoughts are of the observer. He seems deep in thought looking at happy children who will have a very different life to his. I can't help but wonder if he was as lucky as us and was able to see such scenes with his own eyes. Cheers, Marlene

Une jolie exposition de photos que regarde cet homme.
J'aime ton cadrage et ta composition.
J'ai aussi une photo de Plovdiv avec une exposition de photos, le thème était sur la Bulgarie vue du ciel.

Hello Gert, My first thought was on seeing this & reading your note, how were his photos & how do they compare with what you see on TE? Nice shot & interesting, captured the art work & a local partaking in the open air exhibition. Well done

Have a nice day.

The world is an open book, certainly for people that a lot read of a lot look for on internet.
Nice daily life picture with the pictures as exhibition.
Composition and presentation are superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Very nice photo to some extent of someone's else art. The photos displayed seem to be of excellent quality. Very well composted. Maybe it would have been better if the lady on the right was not there but she was!
kato (11630) 2011-12-26 10:31
This is an interesting photograph, so it is called TrekEarth's mission as you note. Being exhibited in the road is also impressive. And, a man watching photographs draws out a good effect as well as a woman walking along right sidewalk.

Like your sneaky one! and caught unaware except the lady. Really enjoy with the placement and pose of the figure as people-watching is so rewarding as shown. I'm drawn to the stunning colours of pictures on display, being essential to the potency of this shot, as well as the figure who shows great interest and so absorbed in the process and his body lingo says a lot. Sharpness and details are superb so as the contrast, Serie of different images leading to one whole view, definitely makes this image intriguing that tells a story. Great street candid well taken

Good idea and correct implementation.
