One-wheeled biker and homeless man


My camera caught these two in Ocala's downtown square just recently: deep in conversation.

Halcyon said...

Hee! I like the title of this post. This is one of those scenes you could make up an interesting story about.

JM said...

This composition is just great! Well done!

Interesting shot of a daily life scene, though maybe not... Most people would shy away from a homeless person.

Jacob said...

@ Halcyon - I've thought about that many times...you could make up many scenarios...but what is their real story? Who are they? They were conversing for a long time; what were they talking about?

This image stirs the imagination, and isn't that what it's all about? I am always amazed when I see someone riding a unicycle. I do well to keep my bicycle upright. It must take talent to ride one of those.

Excellent photo! Thanks for all your comments over at Glasgow DP, sorry I've been out-of-action for a while in terms of catching up with comments. Trying to get through lots tonight on my husband's PC - my laptop is still missing its powerpack sadly.

it is a bike that always makes me dream. One side circus

Hey, Jacob, I love street photography and this is wonderful. Wait 'til you see what bike riders in New Orleans are doing these days.

Jacob said...

@ PJ - OK, what are bike riders in New Orleans doing these days? Are you going to show us?

Lois said...

Nice street scene!

Jacob said...

@ Lois, re: a previous comment on your post today: Lois Anne just came in to tell me we are under a tornado watch!

Duh! Shows how much I know!

Funny pun on the Murrow bust, Jacob! Your photo captures the pulse of most cities today. Hope to see you at Skywatch Friday!

I would call this scene "Compatibility". I wish philanthropy spreads.

Jacob, here you captured a scene that could have come straight from a movie.
Mostly man-to-man talks are flash-cooked ;)

Jacob said...

@ Juergen - OK, friend, this time you got me: what is "flash-cooked"?

Mike said...

People are some of the most interesting subjects. I always enjoy photos of daily life - whatever that may be in any particular place or time.
Thanks
