PHOTO DESCRIPTION
A simple picture during my walk in Klong toei. And some people i have met there.
Here a truck driver and a shy little girl. with a Thai friend i was walking there and enjoyed talking with people. Here below the freeway the drivers park their trucks either repair them. I like  these moment, or having begun the conversation, people forget the camera.

Sans aucun doute ma préférée de la série. Le cadre, la composition, les tonalités du n&b, mais aussi un univers dans lequel on plonge immédiatement.
Une photo qui raconte une histoire.

hello Simon,

Wow, this one is also amazing. Like Steve says : the light is really well managed !  It's like a moviescene .

A spectacular daily life shot Simon. The light is mannaged so nice, so subtle. I think the driver would be perfect for a more close portrait, featuring his tatoos....him being bare-chest and all

Wishing you a happy new year

Bonjour du Cambodge Simon ou il pleut sur Phnom Penh ce soir - chaude journee... Battambang nous a decu - un bled poussiereux, pollue a mort, une population morne et grincheuse, je sais que l'on m'en voudra de le dire mais... ca ne m'a pas empeche de tirer comme un dingue (il fautr bien prendre des photos, non?)

Tres belle cell-ci, un peu film noir et tres "vraie" dans ce qu'elle represente. Une certaine poesie aussi - de la tres belle photo. Je serais de retour (et en circulation) des le 1er de l'an. A bientot et meilleurs voeux,

Une très belle composition avec une atmosphere paisible et pleine de petits émotions. Un beau contrast entre la durté du camioner et la petit fillet timide.

Le noir et blanc est magnifique, vraiment.

Hasta la vista, et bonne fin d'année !

Hi Simon,
It is really a brave project. The emotions of the truck driver and the little girl adds nice feeling in this shot and you have captured the perfect posture. Want to see more .

So beautiful again, Simon, a real nice side of life... the moment you caught is perfect, the little girl bursting out laughter, wonderfully seen, caught with a perfect tilt, of course :)
