Fin d'après midi allant quitter Cassy, m'approchant près du port, il y avait ce monsieur coucher sur le banc de pierre le long du port, sa tête reposant sur une bouteille, cela m'a fait rire, pris de derrière et occuper avec son GSM, il ne s'est pas aperçu de ma présence :-)

Hello Christiane,
This photo made me laugh for the first time this morning. Nothing could fit the category "daily life" more perfectly, even though using an empty bottle for a pillow is a bit unusual. Very well spotted.
Kind regards,

Witaj Christiane!
Dobrze wypatrzone.
Znakomity strza³ reporterski.
Widok robi wra¿enie.
Mi³ego dnia.

Bonjour, chère Cricri,
En effet, avoir une bouteille pour oreiller ce n'est pas la chose la plus confortable.
Très bonne réactivité.
Bon humour !

Une bouteille en pet vide peut toujours servir et surtout ne pas la jeter n'importe ou quelle iamge comme il l’utilise comme coussin avec son natel sa tête géniale
Bravo et belle journée

Ciao Cricri, fine shoot, I like pollo e with empty notte, fine details and splendid clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Christiane
Good bit of observation here and a depiction of iphone young and old gen, I like the crop, use of colour and dof, Worth sharing anyway. Congrats
Best regards

Hello Christiane,

You were very alert to spot this and you chose the perfect angle to explain what you were seeing and how it was amusing!
I'm sure a glass bottle can't make a comfortable pillow but it was raising his head to allow him to use his mobile phone!
A fine close-up!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Christiane,

GSM is today the apparatus of the century.
Nobody can without, notwithstanding we formerly never came to late.
Composition an presentation are excellent made.
Very well done, TFS.

Belle journée, blue ciel 20°C (15.10h)

Bonjour Cricri,

Cette photo me fait sourire et ce n'est pas rien car il pleut à boire debout aujourd'hui. C'est plaisant de constater qu'un bouteille de jus peut servir à tout. Même être un coussin inconfortable lorsque nécessaire.



Dobro vece.
Interesantan pogled i trenutak, dobar tekst ...
lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Svi smo postali zavisnici mobilnih telefona.
Zelim vam lepu i mirnu noc, sve najbolje.

Good evening.
Interesting look and a moment, good text ...
beautifully shown, good contrast, beautiful colors, beautifully captured moment.
We all became mobile phone addicts.
I wish you a nice and peaceful night, all the bes

Hello Christiane,

mdr! Or lol! It cannot be too comfortable but I guess that the bottle serves its purpose as a makeshift head rest so he can continue to browse his phone. Tfs!

Bonjour Cricri.
I would certainly have photographed this scene if I came along.
This picture is very beautiful and humorous.
Contemporary by the smartphone in the hand of the slacker, but especially by the original pillow that the man uses.
Superb observation.
Have a nice day. Groet Rob

Hi Christiane
now thats a unique way to use a pillow, perhaps not the most comfortable though :) funny perspective, funny pov, it works well from a viewers standpoint. and of course he has to be looking at his phone haha. cheers

um travesseiro improvisado e risível. excelente e inusitado esse flagrante da moderna vida diária onde plástico e celulares são parte do cotidiano.



Hi, Cricri!
Well, this is really amazing daily life scene. Good idea to use a soft bootle as a pad. Why not? Good choice of the point of view. Thumbs up!
Best wishes!

Bravo Christiane

il n'y a pas que les paysages dans la vie. Drôle d'oreiller pour mieux surfer sur son ordi portable!
Encore félicitations

Hello Christiane,
This is a fun photo to look at. 👍👍 The light is well managed and the man is in focus while the background has a nice blur. I can even read that his smart phone is Samsung. It looks like the bottle he is using as a pillow originally contained orange juice, he must have filled it up with water. I assume GSM is the French acronym for a cell phone. It is interesting that Google translated it in the note but not in the title.
