Males Can Sleep Anywhere

By Jaye
As these guys were asleep on their hand trolleys I think their work had been done earler ferrying all the flowers to the famous Flower Market around the corner in busy Bangkok. They were probably getting their "strength" back ready to help with all the packing up when the market had finished.

Made me laugh a lot thanks ... (surely they are just preventing the theft of their trolleys during their break and they are just 'resting their eyes'). Well spotted and captured.

Very droll. I particularly like the yellow plastic basket; no idea why. Perhaps it makes the situation more real?
Fun picture anyway!

Fabulous candid, beautifully cropped for maximum effect. And yes, the yellow basket really makes it - plus the one empty chair. My kind of shot and I'm jealous!

The empty chair is the foreman's seat. The yellow basket is in fact an alarm clock set to go off just before the foreman returns.
Thats what I see anyway - great candid.

A great capture Judith . It did make me smile . Hate to think of the trouble a line of young women asleep like that would cause !! Great fun image and well presented xx

good photo Judith of a fab scene. It actually works better than the b&w one, as they stand out more. Also on the left there is a bit more space, which makes for a stronger composition. the long narrow format suits this well, but I would have liked to see less at the bottom and more on top.
As mentioned, they look like 5 overgrown babys in a makeshift maternity hospital.

Thanks for the constructive comments I did a few crops but left it at the bottom trying to show that they were really near the gutter...Judith
