Trg Sv. Stjepana, Hvar harbour.
This gentleman seemed oblivious to all the hustle and bustle going on around him. I would have thought he could have found somewhere a little more peaceful for a snooze, but he seemed content enough, right in the middle of Hvar's main square by the harbour.

not at all the place that appeals to me for a quick nap but this guy seems to mastered the firm mattress..Shame about his lost feet.

Relaxed... I wish I could do it too. Tremendous composition, what a way to spend the afternoon and shady spot makes an excellent siesta space for him. The glimpse in the bg gives one a sense of where this is, and the subject goes very well with it. Brilliant snap of a very relaxing image!!

I hope he doesn't roll around in his sleep or he could end up with a bath as well!
A photographic opportunity well spotted.
Good use of the shallow dof to ensure attention is placed on the reclining figure but, also, setting a funny context.
It reminds me of the Lowry painting ... 'man lying on a wall' but there, the man still had a cigarette in his mouth!
Have a great day,

Hi again Will
I think this image, together with your note, best describes the different pace of life in that part of the world. Peaceful sleep comes from the peaceful mind I guess.
Have a nice day

This is definitely an amusing shot and a nice observation of daily life. Hopefully he was a calm sleeper, or he might wake up in a very unpleasant and wet way,
