You can't know how much I agree with this fab quote and your illustration... Yes, simple life and we, photographers, know that so well : the present is the nest of happy times we should enjoy in the details... Love how these girls come towards us, their cool air, hands in their pockets, sipping while strolling.... I'll do that today myself again in Istanbul and will think about your wise advice, thanks & simple happy week-end to you, great human being !

What a fabulous quote and the perfect picture to go along with it.
Have a great weekend.

I like the ordinary look of this capture. Just as you named it "everyday". Really nice, Sharon.

Great capture and very nice timing!

Beautiful street capture! I love the expressions of those girls!
23 May 2009 7:42am
Another "street photography" classic. Heh.

Great street shot!

love the scene and the quote you chose. so many small details that make this capture fascinating, one girl enjoying her coffee, the other one looking back at something or someone, i wonder what's her point of interest, and the cool building in the background, creating dynamics. very nice :)

Great inspiring words that go so perfectly with your beautiful slice of life catch!!! Have a very happy weekend!:-)
23 May 2009 1:06pm
Isn't it a little lovely miracle - as I was enjoying and commenting on your post, you're doing the vice versa!:-) I'm certainly getting excited!
23 May 2009 1:12pm
@hugo poon: Funny how that happens sometimes isn't it? The world isn't so big after all :)
Fantastic capture and quote. It's an interesting building in the background too!
23 May 2009 1:17pm
Stroll and drink a glass, a quite simple pleasure of everyday wich you captured well here again.
23 May 2009 1:19pm
Lovely street shot and what an impressive architecture in the background. Works so good in b/w.
23 May 2009 2:13pm
Wonderful capture. Love the Hansel quote. It's amazing what a simple cup of coffee can do for the spirits. One of the joys of retirement is having the time to settle into the simple, the common, the ordinary, the every day.

Lovely girls, friends of yours? I can never shoot directly into strangers' face out in the open, unless I'm using a zoom lens from far away...but then the back ground will all be blurry...
I think stereo type exists in our everyday life. If you were a man taking such a picture you might get different reactions from the girls, unless of course you were Brad Pitt... :-)
Interesting building, I like the colonnade that wraps aroung the side of the building, what and where is it?
23 May 2009 3:06pm
@Ti: Thank you Ti :)
No, I have no idea who they are, and I saw them coming and took a photo. Surprisingly enough being female at times does not help me with reactions from people as I photograph them. Trust me...
i like how oblivious they look here.. must be your friends, eh? very nice shot.. :)
23 May 2009 3:27pm
natural attitude, so great^^
23 May 2009 4:12pm
blue, great job! Everyone has said everything I am feeling for this image, so just go back and reread their comments! :)
23 May 2009 4:26pm
I love your quote ! nice moment of everyday life !
23 May 2009 4:31pm
great b&w, i like the expression on her face
23 May 2009 4:37pm
Amen to your quote....I also thought that there is a nice double meaning about "every day" when I look at her coffee! That is sure an "every day" event for me :)
23 May 2009 4:55pm
Very Nice expressions
23 May 2009 5:34pm
Very nice b&w. Great capture. Love the architecture.
23 May 2009 5:36pm
J'aime autant le texte que la photo.
Bravo pour cette magnifique photo, j'aime beaucoup l'angle de prise de vue.
23 May 2009 6:29pm
Great street shot, nice capture of the lives of others.
23 May 2009 6:34pm
Nice detail shot of these two girls.
23 May 2009 8:30pm
Just a lovely capture of the moment. I can almost "feel" it...
23 May 2009 8:41pm
Une image à laquelle je n'adhère pas vraiment : le sens, et la mise au point, sur quoi, ou qui ?....
23 May 2009 8:48pm
An nice street photo nicely processed.
23 May 2009 8:55pm
Wonderful spontaneity. Beautiful picture of the everyday.
23 May 2009 10:29pm
Love this street scene! An ordinary day getting some morning coffee brought to life!
23 May 2009 11:13pm
Beautiful people and beautiful buildings. Love it.
24 May 2009 12:59am
Agree with you 100% on that quote. A stunning shot as usual, an appealing composition with the two young women and the fascinating background architecture.
24 May 2009 1:47am
Ah, true, true. I recently almost lost my eyes for looking for those miracles... Your works are always giving me some awakenings. Thank you!
24 May 2009 3:52am
Nice capture-really love the architecture in the background as well. Great title.
24 May 2009 2:38pm
i like this - there's something, i'm not sure what, about the girl looking over her shoulder, that is very engaging.
25 May 2009 4:06am
wonderful, I can almost hear them talking
26 May 2009 4:12am
I wonder what everybody is looking at, now you got me all curious :) Always look for that little miracle, especially when I have a camera in hand. Great shot & quote.
26 May 2009 5:21pm
I like this picture, the 2 ladies and the building behind. Nice street photo.
27 May 2009 1:55am
Muy buena foto de calle. Me encanta la composición y el momento bien captado.
29 May 2009 6:49pm
