Default A fav from the streets of El Salvador

Walking around the side streets and alleys up in the city, yesterday afternoon. One of my favs from the day

It doesn't have words, but a lot of different thoughts can be read in to an image like this. Nice coloring and tone too.

An interesting capture Rob.

Would love to know what the lady in the middle was thinking.

Not strictly true, Mr. Pickles; the image actually does have words. The signage is a religious message, referring to the second Person of the (Christian) Trinity.

Looks to me like the two women don't agree or believe what the man is saying.

I'm not so sure of that. The woman in the middle, to which wolf refers, could just be "vegging," or letting her mind wander. Her eyes don't appear to be fixed on anything in particular, certainly not the man at viewer's left.

Funny what we can read into photographs. LOL.

Of course I have no idea what is going on in anyone’s mind that’s in the photograph. The part of the scene that I am aware of, is that it is the end of the working day for these food vendors at the market - they are all packed up - and probably partially vegging, in he middle of conversation, and my speculation is that they may be waiting for someone to pick them up or just relaxing before a long walk home pushing their packed up cart along the rough streets amongst busy traffic.
