Simply people ... doing what we all do. 1 of 7

 

In the small Suffolk town where we spend several weeks a year the main street is periodically closed off  to allow a street fair to take place .

 

This opportunity was 'food for the gods' (so as to speak ) and allowed me to take snaps,  not of the stalls  but yes, you've guessed it , of the people who attend .

I did a series based on the same theme which I started posting on September 1st 2008. It might be intersting  to compare the two series ...and you are welcome to comment in anyway  you like.

20 quid in his hand but sill he prefers to eat ball-point pens.

You need to have Bill send him directions to the bacon butties bar.

Excellent shot, Richard.
Richard Trim: I guess he's made a sale and and has just noted down how much profit he made on the sale of the said item .... ;-) richard

Great picture. Proves that we should have been born with a third hand! (Though some people have developed a useful ledge in front! LOL)
Richard Trim: We seem to have so many stratagies to helpus to cling on to things ..... Thanks Sheila.

I LOVE this, Richard! It's funny how this is something we all do from time to time but we never see a photo of it!
Richard Trim: The thought of the funny things we do in public and never become aware is quite scary really ... Ha!
thanksGinnie.

Looks a little pre-occupied; I like the "pen holder" smile
Richard Trim: Dreaming of the money he hopes to make on the day I guess Alan.

Great candid. This guy reminds me of a TV actor - dunno the name though.
Richard Trim: I'm no help on that Louis.

cheers richard
I thought I knew this chap from the thumbnail, but I don't. A chap I used to work with, who is now coming up to 60, will look like this man in a few years time. A very nice shot Richard.
Richard Trim: Many thanks Brian.

Nice candid, Richard. What a strange pose! How do you get your pictures so crisp - it's a mystery to me? do you use some special crisping software?!
Ingrid
Richard Trim: A stall holder who has just made a killing comes to mind. Maybe he is going to record in his little note book his profit margin.

Pictures crisp? ... Always deep fry them.

Thanks Ingrid.

Haha- a fine observation,typically man I would say (or the pen posting behind the ears or in the pocket of the jacket..., but in general a rather unusual gesture, not very comfortable, not appropriate to persons (like me) who like talking...! I like the sceptical look, he could be a teacher!
Richard Trim: If I remember correctly he was a stall holder and had obviously just made a sale. Maybe he was wondering if he could have got more for the antique artifact that he had sold.
Hobby for retired people ... Yes I wonder what his main career route was.

Many thanks Philine.

Now thats what I call a B&W, contrast and clarity.
