Hehe like this, someone left him out the shop window. He`s kind of mimicking the pose of the mannequins, unintentionally of course.

wooooof ! how's that for a surprise. Allthough I liked it myself, I was convinced I would be about the only one (sorry for my lack of confidence lol). Didn't even do the trouble of straightening it.

It was quite a rush job really Robert. I was looking at the scene with the swivelscreen, trying to get a decent composition and trying to get the shutterspeed and aperture a bit right, when suddenly he - he's a salesman, but I think of the shop next door - started yawning and stretching out. Really pushed the shutter button in a reflex, hoping quality-wise it would be ok. Took 4 more photos of him after this, straighter and a bit better quality, but he's just standing there, where in this one you have that moment where it seems the mannequins are mocking him through imitation. A second earlier the moment wasn't there, a second later it was gone.

Thanks again for commenting and viewing everybody :o)

Quick reflexes you got, Koen. It's a great candid image. I thought that when he saw you with the camera he started imitating the mannequins.
