Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life

Photos of everyday life are generally appealing to me in one of two ways. First, there are photos, often black and white images, that depict gritty inner city existence. Things that would not necessarily be enjoyable to DO, but are visually beautiful. The other kind of images are those depicting situations in everyday life that I am drawn to personally in that they are things that I would like to do or places I would like to be.

I am prone to relaxing. I may have been a cat in a former life because I can happily remain stationary in pleasant settings and just watch the world go by. If there was a job of world watcher that required you to just keep an eye on things making sure that the world hadn’t stopped existing I think I would be the primary candidate for the job.

So, I have taken several photos of everyday life that appeal to me in that they are of people relaxing.

I couldn’t believe my luck when I came across these three gentlemen lined up along the outside of the pub drinking. The pub was located at the main (and only) intersection of the town. The shot is taken through our dirty car windscreen pulled over at an intersection so I appologise for the less than perfect quality.
I jumped out of the car and asked these men if they minded me taking their photo (Something I would never have done without my husband’s encouragement. Why is it so confronting asking if they mind?? I don’t know what I think they are going to say? They rarely do!). They looked perplexed, but said “No worries!” I told them to pretend I wasn’t there…
…someone couldn’t quite contain their curiosity at the strange woman with the camera who appeared out of nowhere to photograph their afternoon!

I am…loving the expression on that boy’s face! Priceless.
