...and not letting that annoying guy with the camera bother you a bit. :)

There is such a thing as being too comfortable.

Halcyon said...

Tee hee! I guess he got tired of all the shopping. Apparently, it's the biggest passtime in Ocala. ;)

PS: By the time Hilda of Manila makes it to the Florida Gulf coast, those beautiful white sand beaches will be black with tar. I am hopping mad about this oil spill. And I think the real culprit in all of this is GREED. I'm afraid our beautiful gulf coasts (from Louisiana to Florida) will never be the same again. And that's only the land... there's also the birds and wildlife who have been affected. :(

Waiting while the Mrs. does a little shopping I'd bet.

I think that less relaxing and more exercising might be the order of the day for this guy. Great capture.

You mean that comfortable things come to those who wait? Mayhaps.

Bibi said...

I would rather he sit like this to rest his feet rather than (as some do....) put them on the table in front of the chair.

Good, natural shot

:-)) I hope she doesn't try on ALL the pants in the shop.

VP said...

Nice catch, I'm not so sure about the head, though.

Love this photo - it should be called "The Slob". His paunch and ghastly shorts and the way he conducts himself in public - perfect.

You've really caught something interesting here, Jacob. This man seems to be reflecting and reflected in the shop glass is a young woman, scantily clad. Is there a connection? That's the question you set up in the viewer's mind. Nice work.

Rob said...

Let me guess, she is shopping. All we need is a full wet bar, beer nuts, and a big screen TV and I'll be happy to 'shop'.

Is he asleep? MB

Ps. I am with Halcyon in her PS and in my word verification was the word TAR..............

Lois said...

If I tried to sit like that my feet would go to sleep!

Daryl said...

Now there's a man who has no inhibitions .. or maybe he's testing the chair's arm torque ...

JM said...

Great capture, Jacob! Even more for having that 'marathon man' in the background! What a contrast! :-)

Rose said...

I did not notice the reflection till I read the comments...

tapirgal said...

So totally American, at least in some laid-back parts of the country.

Memphis MOJO said...

I bet he hates shopping just like I do. Probably waiting on his honey.

Irina said...

Maybe comfortable, but he does not looks like relaxed at all. I agree with Bharat, he is angry.
