At the end of the small lane where I took the previous photo is the back entrance to a restaurant. Three chefs and waiters were taking a break. Before them passed a never ending procession of folk that came to Hosier Lane to see the graffiti and who wandered to this less arty lane that had a number of industrial bins painted heavily with graffiti or tags.
The chef was lost in his inner space, oblivious to the goings on.

A moment of restful contemplation!!
Or just a chance for a quick ciggie!
Having seen a number of programmes about chefs and their schedules, it doesn't surprise me that they need to have timeout! I'm sure I would bend under the pressure!
I like how the focal figure is framed by the two ladies, all unaware of your presence. It makes a sharp, colourful photograph.
Have a great w/e,

He really liked the legs of girl:) and had many contemplations:) it is normall to be oblivious to the other enviroment:)

Excellent photo, good capture of a piece of daily life on the streets of Melbourne. I like this picturesque series! Well done!
Mislim da će mnogi biti sretni, ako slaveni će početi da se između sebe bore. Ja ne bih htio biti zabavno tim ljudima. Uopće ne možete, kao što sam umorna od Putina i njegove carske kraljevskim akcija, osim toga, on ima podršku među . Vjerojatno raspad carstva to boli, i mnogi ljudi žele osvetu za poraz u "hladnom ratu", A uskoro će Europa će proslaviti 100-godišnjicu prvog svjetskog rata. Lijep ugođaj, zar ne?

Good seen moment by you. Mentality of the males are similar everywhere in the world. It's natural.

smoke break for the cook just before the meal time; he seems lost in his toughts, not looking at the girls around him.
Brilliant daily life scene

you captured and framed this candid portrait in a wonderful way. The framing by the two ladies, his white shirt and the yellow paint above him emphasize the main hero and his attitude superbly. This is a funny, expressive look, I think that most men can't help it but it's annoying when they have this look while you are talking to them. I like very much the strong, natural colours in the calm, diffused light. I think that this scene owes a lot of its charm to the colourful backdrop that creates a special context. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Is the chef as lost in his own thoughts as the first glimpse could indicate, or is he discreetly admiring the nice legs in front of him? Whatever was on is mind you caught him very well in a gap in the crowd. This was a very well captured moment in the kind of environment where photo opportunities come and go in a matter of seconds.

"People watching people watchers" can be so fun and this gives me a great big laugh! Very well spotted and captured when his head is turned in that direction for to the sight of a beautiful pair of legs! Now, how many males would not take a longing look? this is a typical male thing to do and it's the totally humane hehehe. His expressions speak a thousand words, my mind revels in the concept portrayed in your simple but elegant take on the art of 'street'
Brilliant candid photography at its very best......

You singled out an interesting character here Klaudio; the chef is sitting in his own 'bubble' totally unconcerned with the stream of people passing by. Deep in thought and enjoying his cigarette break he is creatively framed by the two ladies. Very good composition, I like the crop and the rich colours.
Warm regards Rosemary

Hello Klaudio. Yes, the new modern world is colored and has many facets. Time out - such images are ideal for taking photographs. Despite cigarette break is still time for a look at the legs of pretty woman.

This is a perfect street snapshot. I like the composition, especially the smoking man resting on his shop box and watching the girl legs. All very well framed in portrait format.
Very well done.
p.s. thanks for your nice comment.

Very nice candid shot of this guy taking a break and looking at women. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Lost in inner space? Maybe so. Being of a cynical bent, I prefer to think he's lost between her legs. If I can use an expression like that on TE. Nice observational shot!

Visto che ti piace ti commento la foto in Italiano! Mi piace come hai composto questa immagine! Bello il ragazzo al centro, che sembra essere in una pausa di lavoro, incorniciato dalle due ragazze in primo piano! Fantastica la definizione, belli i colori! Complimenti!!
mesutilgim (85318) 2014-03-13 14:24
A capture worth for triple wooows !
I would title it also as "humouresque".
TFS and best regards

Good evening Klaudio,
There is something quite captivating with this image. The chef certainly looks contemplative and the front on approach when he is framed by the women also absorbed in their own being is very cleverly captured.
Thanks for sharing his quiet solitude in the midst of a busy street
