The mule was "parked" in front of a taverna, at noon. Don't know what the mule thought about, but the guy seems to enjoy the situation...
There was an other mule too, standing - photo tomorrow.
Old negativ,scanned with problems because of the quality of the film.

Nice shot Janos, very well composed and quite funny. The profiles are perfect and the mule closing its eyes adds to the humor. The slight over-exposure works well in this picture, it makes the scene look more happy and vacation-like IMO.

Maybe the donkey was afraid the man was about to kiss him. Very funny photograph. The donkey lying gives the idea that even the donkey is on vacation.

This is a funny shot, Janos, but the bad quality is too distracting. besides the bleached colors, which caused by the age of the film, there are some composition problems: 1. The background is too dominant. You could try norrower DOF or another angle.
2. I'd try a closer view, almost a close up. I tried a WS, but if I crop I get a very bad result.
3. Change to b/w or sepia might help a little bit.
