sleep well Mom

flydragon / © Simon Kolton - 12/11/2007 12:29:03 project: somewhere in Isaan \ Asia \ Thailand \ Nong Khai
One day i was walking in a small village, looking for some noodle to eat,
i guess you know that taking picture make us hungry ;o).
i met 3 women, mother, daughter and neighbor, they invited me to sit up on the terace
and drink cold water,  we talked long time about, famer life, about the Isaan, it was a pleasant moment, in a quiet place. After this long discussion, Mom were tired, and decided to take a nap. sleep well Mom, we are here near you.

These tones, the contrasts, the variations of shades, the beautifully crafted crop itself, Simon, a shot to die for! Beautiful angle, of course, as you must have been lying beside Mom to take this, with the clothes hanging behind her... so very beautiful. I did miss seeing your work,

Hello Fly. I'm sorry not to agree with Eric and Steph: contrast is top notch on my screen, tones are as good as ever (b&w digital in your hands is pure joy), and light caresses gently her face as a breeze. Beautiful point of view, as if you also were laying down for the siesta. But of course, as others have well spotted, you were just waiting that everyone would fall asleep to go pick your noodles from the pot. I can hear your starving belly singing his noodles complaint.

Donc si j'ai bien suivi, a part la boisson fraiche tu es reste le ventre vide...tu pensais qu'elle allait te preparer un bol de nouilles ?

J'imagine la deception, voire la frustration intense de Simon ;o) comme l'a souligne Eric, elle ne dort pas, mais elle attendait que tu partes afin de pouvoir manger ses nouilles en loose....

Mis a part mon interpretation trouve le cadrage serre et le fait que tu sois egalement allongé pour prendre la photo, nous plonge dans le contexte de la sieste et dans une situation assez confortable et je propose que nous y allons tous en faire une pour digerer le dejeuner. 

Quelle bonne comedienne ;o)

Salut Simon,

She does not sleep, I can see her eye half open, like she's checking what you are doing...just in case you'd be flirting with her daughter or grand daughter;-) She knows you are a naughty boy!...haha! I like the softness and easy going atmosphere of the scene... Although i am a bit disturbed by the fact that half her legs are out of the frame. I feel a bit uneasy with this crop to be quite honest! and just like I said last night, i have the feeling the black is not so dark... rather greyish and soft! And DON'T SAY IT IS MY SCREEN! Grrrr!

Un grand "still" d'un film genre Satyajit Ray mais tourne en Thailand. C'est eau comme tout, SImon, que veux-tu que je te dise...? Ta PDV si basse, qui ne derange personne, suout pas la vieille qui dort..comme un enfant. Pour moi, superbe! Francis

Mon oeil est ici d'avantage focalisé sur son chemisier que sur son visage. Il manque pour moi du contraste. Au bien c'est mon écran à la SG...
