OK, why this title: Looks like the little girl is really enjoying her sandwich and happy but the lady looks like she is in dilemma. should She should have one of these as well but how about the calories...
or maybe I am just outreaching :)
Photo was taking while walking through streets of Pythagoreio at Samos Island.
Samos is a Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea. In ancient times Samos was a particularly rich and powerful city-state. It is home to Pythagoreion and the Heraion of Samos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes the Eupalinian aqueduct, a marvel of ancient engineering. Samos is the birthplace of the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, after whom the Pythagorean theorem is named, the philosopher Epicurus, and the astronomer Aristarchus of Samos, the first known individual to propose that the Earth revolves around the sun. Samian wine was well known in antiquity, and is still produced on the island. (from Wiki)

Haha, I like the interpretation of the observed scene :). Well, better not think about the calories. I love these Greek colours - white and blue.
Amusing, well observed scene.

Hi Basak, Very interesting presentation of this picture in front of a snake bar. The expressions of the girl and the lady are really tell you what they are thinking. I like the composition of the normal life setting and not emphasize only on the colour, sharpness.......thank very much

good guess. The elder one may be afraid a bit thinking the calory potency of that sandwich. A nice moment captured no doubt. Very good thinking and efficiently composed. The distance between the two subjects is generally destroy the frame, but here in my thinking it is best suited considering the mental distance of these two. An interesting one. Tfs.

Ha ha Basak!
I like it! The woman looks envious of the little girl who can still eat without feeling guilty!
I like the composition too - all the elements are well balanced in the frame.

such a funny shot...the lady looks envious and the girl's pretty cool:)) I doubt it's about the calories...should have skipped beer as well:)
I like the dominating bright blue, it does make the image stand out.
Thanks and best wishes!

This is a well observed moment of daily life, and it could be interpreted in several amusing ways. Maybe the woman is wondering why her husband doesn't come back with that second beer she asked him for. I like how she is placed at one side of the composition and the girl at the oter side. They are both interesting to watch and keep the photo together very nicely.

you have caught a special moment, with the woman looking the young girl enjoying her sandwich.
The intense blue of the chairs and its contrast with the white of the facade, adds a good visual power into the ensemble. A nice place for to take a beer.
PS: the hotel in Istanbul of my last photo is the Adamar Hotel in Sultanahmet, really it deserves a visit, specially because of the breathtaking views from its roof terrace.

very interesting daily life photo story, but I think she looks over the girl. Perhaps there is more interesting subject than some calories ;)
Anyway eye-catching photo with traditional Greek colors!

ne göz alıcı mavi... yunanlılar bu işi biliyor, içlerinden geliyor, genetik kodlarına işli... bizdeki herşey ise genelde kötü bir taklit, en lüksünden olsa bile...
