Back to this one. So good.

Oh, but his taking off the shoes adds very much to the charm of this picture. It is so endearing and so human. Bravo!!!

So good... It seems even like the pot of tea is bending like the man's head :) It looks perfect in b&w, mostly because of his socks! Ok... female genes talking loud here but imagine if the socks didn't match with the rest?? It would ruin the photo for sure. I am kidding, but well I am so serious too :)
Congratulations! It's another fine Kal photo find.

Excellent image. Notice the modern watch on the old-fashioned man. It's a pleasant detail.

Great image Kal

Duncan is right. Light works perfectly in this black and white. It's falling slowly on this sleeping man... It's a beautiful, moving image.

Great black and white - excellent choice. Some shots need colour and some black and white. Very well done

Is he the owner of this place ? ... 23h04, he seems to have a very long day. No more customer, the pot of tea get cold, his feet hurts and he falls slowly in the sleep and shadows. A very beautiful image, Kal!

The thumbnail fooled me into thinking average ! When I really looked !
YES ! another brilliant picture , The shoes off and teapot really add to the feel .
B+W masterpiece again . Did it work with colour ?

I look at this and see a man who has worked to hard!

Tired and retreating to his comfort zone. Yes we all do have our own similar moments. And I like the way his head is pointing to the teapot too. Very well seen, Kal.
