I liked the juxtaposition of writing on the wall and the two guys looking so pleased with the results of the barbers expertise. Now, all he needs is the tights and blue knickers.
Thank you and apologies for not responding to all the really nice comments on previous posts recently, my mum died and my world has gone a little heelsy creelsy lately but I hope to correct my bad manners as soon as I get my act back together.

Hello Marion. At the hairdresser. I see so many interesting details. Hairdressers are indeed in his own words "artist". Customers want to be well served and entertain. And this can Hairdressers perfect as I see it.
Overall a good shot - nothing is really more interesting than people.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

Sorry to hear about your mum. Despite your problems at the moment, you've managed to post a lovely informal moment here. You don't say if you know either of them: or did you just shove your head through the front door?? I like photographs like this: simple everyday human moments. Excellent image.

Firstly, I've just now noticed that you have started posting pictures again - and that directed me back to this one. Having now read your note, I can quite understand that you have had other things and other thoughts on your mind. I'm so sorry for your loss and I hope that you are now managing to get back to some sort of normality. I know from experience it can take some time.
Anyway, this is a lovely "candid" shot and very well taken too. Judging by the smiles on the faces of the two men, I presume that these people weren't complete strangers to you but, even so, this is certainly not a "posed" shot by any means.
There's a nice spark of humour in this one too and, despite what must have been quite difficult lighting conditions, your light, colours, exposure and sharpness are excellent. I really love the "Superman" sign above but there's other things too - like the bust above the mirror, the reflection of the barber in the mirror and the portrait of the good-looking young man at far right - they all add wonderfully to the image!
Kind Regards and God Bless,
