a sense of place, he holds that post on his corner perch, shares silence and perhaps words...watching down the road from the small public bench at the end of what must be some kind of an old public building at the end of the little lane where they live....they wait for a food cart, no doubt, the sun is high...stuff for dinner later....the place has the casual look of being in lived-in condition for maybe about 70 years without much change...except maybe that bench.

****I love the way the thoughtful child unconsciously exercises along with the stranger behind him, but in his own, understated way. The image is all about legs in juxtaposition -- legs being used as we don't usually see them used. The blue sandals on the ground call attention to the child's bare feet, which in turn stress his perch on the corner of the bench. He seems very patient for a child, lost in a world of his own.

Great image Jen. There is something wonderfully dreamy about the boys gaze...wishing for a better time, or maybe wondering if it will ever come. His mom just carries on with her routine....for her, nothing will change. One of your best colour images in my view. K

This is social photography as it`s best. This foto "talks" to the viewer - as the mother talks to her son, while he is interested in other things...a wonderful street impression with many and lovely details (p.e. the blue slip slops of the kid on the ground..) Thanks for the delight Jen!

I like the moment of this image. I also like the few colours and the crop of it.
Very nice work.

Im impressed to feel something like this when I look at this photo.
Feels like being inside this photo with them...
This and the snowman & lion are my favorite photos from your galleries.
