Josh, again you amaze us with your kind of photography. I am using this term because you really made it to create and artificial style of your own. This style is not obvious, not that kind of "in your face" photography. It is quiet, concentrating on the things that surround you. But still it is orientated on very classic rules. You know, what it is all about if it comes make a really interesting picture. It's all about storytelling. And you tell us a short storywith this capture. The framing, mainly the back of your neighbors head, is an invitation for the viewer to direct his look at the center of the picture. Even the french fries in your neighbor's hand point to the couple leaving the picture.

And then you see the hungry hand coming from the right...
thanks for sharing
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
13 out of 28 deviants thought this was fair.

The image speaks itself in a lot of ways.
The man without shirt might depict to someone, sitting at a restaurant in summer heat,
while one might feel like being 'Without You'.

Without You here signs towards being without a job or money.

The another main attraction of this image is the man's vision.
Its special, it makes viewer feels like he's the one it.

What is it? The man looks towards a happy people passing by.
They might be couples, a father and daughter, etc. but what matters here is ''the man's feeling of someday having a life the people he's sees has today.''

A good relationship, children and a lot more, since these are the most essential things that a person can think in his precious life.

The vision is all clear with its pure message, and it impacts directly over viewers mind in many ways.

Man . . . Those look good . . .
Do you work for a company that makes these things and that wants a great image for their billboards (hahahaha)?

I wish . . .

Actually, this is a pretty billboard-worthy picture . . . :-)

in fact those are not "Pommes frites" :p
I agree that they were not fried in France and I agree that they probably came frozen, though not fried, in a large bag and it is possible, though not likely, that they are a potato "product" as opposed to cut from whole potatoes - - but we can dream that they come from France, come il faut.

:giggle: true.
In fact the difference is just French fries (frites) are like this and pommes frites a bit bigger :D (in fact it's like this in france :D)
:whisper: and fyi : it's comme il faut. :hug:
I'm only half French and went to the Lycee Francais only through the fifth grade so my spelling (in French and in English)is rusty. You are suggesting a difference between "steak fries" and "fries" or as they say in England, "chips." These are steak fries: [link] Good steak fries always beat plain fries in my book - - but only with ketchup and salt.

:iconorlyowlplz: nice :)
(my spelling in both is rusty too don't worry :hug:)
:drool: Those steak fries look so yummy :)
All of the best potato dishes I have ever had, hot or cold, were made by people from Poland but none of them involved deep fryers.
