Well, ya gotta eat sometime.

Regarding 'Camerons Cruises' that old bus has been in that field for years--I should go back and check to see if it is still there. MB

I embiggened it, and this photo is really crisp...nice job.

(the comment spell-checker doesn't like embiggened - we need to send them an e-mail and get it corrected)

Curious portrait 'at work', I really like this kind of photos...

I HATE to eat standing up! I like to sit down, with a proper plate, etc., even if it's a paper one in the Food Court. Our busy lives don't always allow for time, but this just takes a teeny bit, and is so much nicer. But maybe this fellow is short-staffed and just can't.

I hope he doesn't get crumbs in the cashdrawer.

Excellent and true to life shot. I hate eating while standing... Have a great Sunday!

Hi Jacob,

Cool photo. It's really a glimpse of the real life. I do this myself sometimes. Never really thought about it. Now, when seeing your picture, I find myself thinking "OOPSan!"-:)

Have a fantastic Sunday!

Best regards
Asta

Yet another reason I'm glad I don't have to work retail anymore.....eating on the fly!

It's called multi-tasking. Hand held, indoors, no flash? I'm impressed.

Jacob said...

@ Jarat - Good phrase. And yes, yes, yes. Thank you!

Jacob said...

@ Jarat - with a little point-and-shoot.

Jacob said...

@ Virginia -

To my friend, Vi
I've never eaten on a fly
I suppose it's hard to do
And if you fell, you could die!

I was just going to comment the same as Jarat..indoor, low-light and still perfect! I too am impressed. :)

The jewelry is going to be fingerprinted!!

Jacob said...

@ Marie-Noyale - I think the stuff is mostly junk jewelry ... fingerprints thus easily wiped off before packing them up ...

Hmmm. I guess he can't afford to take a lunch break, eh?

This isn't really healthy for him. Anyway, fine shot.

Ah, multi-tasking, I remember it well. I think I lost the ability around 50.
