You've captured an engaging moment, the three men seeming to be caught in the midst of looks and gestures. I like the role the napkins play visually. Did you considering trying to capture photographically the dichotomy you speak about in your comment? The logistics may have made that difficult, of course.
Very cool picture, Lannie. I think it captures a regular group of guys in a day in their lives. My kind of place.
Thanks, Fred. That has occurred to me, but I thought that perhaps having them in the same folder of the same event might show it to some extent--a case of the individual files making sense only in the larger social context. I haven't seriously tried to put them in the same shot--as live shots, that was not possible. There was physical as well as social distance.
Thanks, Liz. My take on it is that these guys were sitting far from the dais--and the "suits"--and were just waiting for the official stuff to be over with so that they could start eating.
