[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken in La Défense, on the platform while I was waiting like all people around, the train to get back to Paris after work ...

That man thought he was disturbing me taking photos whereas he became the subject ... he said sorry for being in the frame and maybe also for yawning so much in front of the camera :)

In the meantime, others were listening to music or pretending to be indifferent ...

Nice capture of the quick moment again! One yawning, one enjoying his music; some facing the camera, others with their back to it; some real that have now become mere pictures, some pictures that have now mixed with the reals - hard to tell which is which anymore...
Great contrasts! So many others to list, but I can only think of these ones right now.
And great to have it BW.

If he should know !!! Maybe he's a TE member ... keep an eye on your comments :D
you have a very good eye Sylvie ,really!
many greetings, inn :)

Ciao Sylvie,
he seems annoyed (but more probably tired after work...), but we are laughing :)
I like as the faces on the poster seem to have realized that you wanted to take the photo really to him and they do the indifferent ones...

Hi Sylvie,
I know posing can be boring but with you behind the camera? Funny shot Sylvie like this type of B&W images. BTW is it you in the left upper corner? ;)

:) Later...

Hi Sylvie.
The B&W give it a lazy mood effect. Which is well portrayed with the yawning man.
Well done,

J'ai horreur des gens qui baîllent sans mettre la main devant la bouche.
Si tu le revois tu lui diras.

hahaha, Sylvie capturing funny subjects and the audience looking up like pretending they didn't notice ...

have a great weekend,

idee magnifique j'aime bien la facon dans ta presente


coucou sylvie
belle prise de vue noire et blanc
comme toujours originalité, mais cela change de la nature
bien vu
bravo et merci

Thats a nice and infectious awn as simply seeing him triggered one in me as well! the b/w with all the blur and action is nicely managed. the lights are good and the abstract value is superb like in all your works Sylvie. The peole in the background busy with ther own thing form an interesting backgrounders. Superb composition.

Hi Sylvie!
I like the background and B&W take on this picture. It's fun reading your note on this post.
Have a great day, always!
Freddie :)

Hahaha, that's it!
Pure live, full action, I like it, a perfect snap-shot ;-)
Thank you so much for sharing, best greetings

Bonjour Sylvie,
As usual, one more shot from your gallery that gets my attention for minutes.
It's a great pleasure to watch this François Truffaut's character with his casual performance.
The BW looks perfect!
All the best,

Ce que j'aime, c'est le regard des personnages sur l'affiche, qui ont l'air de scruter le plafond de la gare. Que cherchent-ils ?

Hi Sylvie,

Neat shot, this guy resembles me in my first block for school... I tend to yawn mid-sentence. :P I like the slight blur in the image, adds to the idea of a train-station... motion, morning rush... quite nice. The high contrast effect and black and white really add a lovely/final touch to the photo! See yeah round.
