Hi Gert. Proof that human speech sets us apart from the other primates.For me it is interesting to see that even in the far flung corners of Eastern Europe the ubiquitous runners and tracksuits are worn by older men. Gone are the days of leather shoes, hats (now it's the ridiculous baseball cap).The world is becoming a giant sausage factory as far as appearances go.Just a personal gripe from an Eastern European who remembers another era. Nice light and clarity. regards. Klaudio.

I do not know whether it is good or bad but I will agree with Claudio that Europe is looking very much the same it doesn't matter anymore where you are. At least these people misssed the bit they send e-mails to each other instead of having a chat at the street corner.
Lovely of bright

An enchanting daily life scene. It looks like they did not notice your presence. Good tight framing, very good colours and perfect sharpness. You even have the "obligatory" red colour here. ;-)
Hälsningar fråm Esbo, där det ny är alltför varmt för mig. ;-)

I almost can imagine what about they are having a chat... health, time or old memories. Who knows?

Very well captured meeting of old people! We can almost hear what they say!
Thanks for sharing!

A wonderful and well-spotted daily life scene. You really have a good eye for these kinds of scenes. Even if this is from another part of the world you see similarities with your photos taken in Asia a long time ago. I love the expression on their faces and you wonder what they are talking about. TFS and have a nice evening!

a good daily life scene. 'Its good to talk' as the telephone advert goes. The clothes are of interest here as I see by others critques.Clothing choice is all about economic status, isn't it. It so much cheaper buy buy mass produced clothing items.
Nicely exposed shot.

A fine view of "daily life" and also nice street scene where you also found some good colours to enhance the picture. But what is the green and yellow thing used for?

Hi Gert. A small talk on the sidewalk. Nothing is really more important than a conversation. Only through the social communication people live. You have skillfully captured this intimate moment with your camera. I like the photo. Regards, Wolfgang.

Hello Gert! Street life, daily life, nice old people, very nice scene, wonderful scenery, sophisticated saturation, superb colours, good shot, splendid effect. Well done!

Hello Gert, I like the interaction you have captured between these two "having a chat", I also like the casual hand on hip pose of the woman & as Klaudio pointed out the sneakers on the old man & his sausage factory like dress sense ;-). A lovely image with good natural colour & soft light.
serp2000 (37517) 2010-07-28 20:55

Excellent framing for this scene of life very well collected. An image full of humanity with the attitudes nad the expression of th two peopels well collected.
Have a nice day,

oh!! this looks like a "frozen" scene from a movie!
they didn't mind you taking a photo of them?? or they were so much involved in their chat that they didn't notice a foreigner passing by and "stealing" a shot? :)
very picturesque scene, also providing some food for thought :)
Again, so much Romania reminds me of Russia...

I was going through your latest pictures (sorry for not commenting very often, my eye is still blurry...) and I see a consistent, coherent approach: they are all very colourful pictures of simple gestures and moment in everyday life. especially the colours are brilliant, vivid, truly happy - sometimes in striking contrast to the situation you portray (solitude, poverty, neglect). the cliche' of the bleak post-war Socialist Eastern Europe is hard to die - your bright colours show something different and I like that.
great documentary series :)

A charming daily life communication scene from Brasov Gert, good framing and pov, superb colors and exposition

I like such scenes very much, not only between couples but also between friends, strangers, vendors and customers. When there's chemistry, scenes like this are interesting and always tempt me to linger for a moment, even if I'm not holding a camera:) I like very much the steady eye contact between the two people, how everything in this narrow frame becomes significant because of their connection. The perspective of the solid wall is great, light and colours have a pleasing naturalness. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
