Interesting conversation, LOL!!! :-D

Clueless in Boston said...

Didn't your mother tell you it was impolite to eavesdrop:)

Sharon said...

Perfect title!

Leif Hagen said...

I knew Florence wouldn't like him! She complains about everyone and everything! (She also complains if her coffee is TOO hot and her ice cream is TOO cold!)

Memphis MOJO said...

Listen to what that jerk said next, he said . . .

tapirgal said...

Too funny - post and comments.

beautifully captured moment

Bibi said...

I love to imagine conversations people are having, and if they're talking loud enough for people to hear, then it's okay to eavesdrop....and take a photo, too, on the sly.

Gunn White said...

I knew that was what she was saying..... ;-)

Small City Scenes said...

You must have been listening in. the title is perfect. Was Leif there with you? MB

Vogon Poet said...

Great! I like this kind of photos, you caught them perfectly.

Kcalpesh said...

Looks like a heated debate going on over there.... and the lady on the right seems to have given up already....

Looks very comfy, this pub.

Marie Reed said...

Another broken heart...

brattcat said...

Looks as if her meal contains one or two bitter herbs.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Oh my gosh! I think that's exactly what she's saying! ;-)

I'm just back from a few days in Upstate New York so will be looking back to see what other gossip you've recorded lately. ;-)

Jim K said...

Looks like shes trying to make a point.

Jacob said...

@ MB - I don't know what they were talking about. They appeared to be old friends; maybe even relatives.

And no, Leif wasn't here. He's frozen forever up in Minnesota. Thaws about once a day and that's when all the weird stuff comes spinning out of his computer ... ;-)

Halcyon said...

I hope they weren't talking about you!!

Jacob said...

@ Halcyon - I didn't know either of them, but if I did, I'd be a bit worried!

Lois said...

That is a fabulous shot Jacob! She is really serious about whatever she is talking about isn't she?

Frank said...

I love the words you put in her mouth but even without actually knowing what's being said, it sure looks serious.

jusdealem said...

Haha! The woman listening looks to be hanging her head like, "Yes, I know. You told me he was no good, I should have listened."

Dan J said...

As you know, I love these types of shots. Candid photography is wonderful and this shot falls right in place.

Love it !

Bergson said...

excellent effect for the colors

Tricia said...

I'm thinking the woman on the left is the mother of the woman on the right & she's getting a divorce? How'd you sneak that pic without them knowing?

Asta said...

Hi Jacob,

The title says it all. LOL-:)
Great shot. You really caught her in the act-:)

Best regards
Asta

cieldequimper said...

Ah, c'mon, give him a lil' bit of credit... Love this Jacob!

Daryl said...

Or .. He said what?

Jacob said...

@ Tricia - I'm very sneaky and extremely quick on the shutter!

Buenos Aires Photoblog said...

Hehe, fun post! I didn't know you do lipreading.

Paula said...

You caught the moment just right. She's really feeling it!

Wolynski said...

Very funny, but can't see the postering effect - photo quite lovely without it, I think.

Cezar and Léia said...

So funny Jacob!They are adorable and I need to confess that your idea for this post fits perfect! LOL
