What a great street scene, Benchwarmers C-8080

Zin,
what a great scene of conversation among friends. It's a great capture.

You know, with a window frame wrapped around these guys you'd also have a frame within a frame.

I can hear the conversation...

The three of them are telling the guy on the left to get with the program and cross his legs the right way!

There was a window-frame...

...but it was incomplete, unattractive, and didn't do anything to support the strong theme of the four guys.

p.s. Part of the frame is visible; it's blah. Now, if it had been painted yellow, say...

Thanks, Eduardo

Looking at these guys enjoy the companionship, I did recall your fine B&W of friends at table sharing a beer.

Re: I can hear the conversation...

Dunno 'bout that; Bainbridge Island folk are well-known in these parts for favoring their Left.

Ooh, that's a good one. Looks like an excellent finish to a hearty breakfast at the restaurant. I just love a town that puts benches around for us old fellas to rest once in a while.

This is the retired, late 50s, early 60s, morning coffee klatch. Good shot. Made their fortune at Microsoft?

Hard to say, Lois Ann

These are probably more of the lawyer/business generation. The Microsofters generally prefer the Seattle side of the Sound, or east of Lake Washington, AFAIK. All that aside, they're good, interesting people who support their schools and a rich cultural environment unusual for a community of under 20,000.
