Great framing as always but man that’s sad….. 🙁
Cheers. Yeah, not the most positive of images, but a telling one…
If the guys in the image were real they were probably just as ‘happy’ as the guy sitting on the sidewalk. At least he doesn’t have to deal with bosses, mandatory evening drinking sessions and absurdly high (office) expectations….
Well yes, there’s definitely that. Wouldn’t like to be in either of their shoes…
Could the seated guy have been minding his own art installation there. That perfectly placed oriented and coloured cigarette packet much have been placed with some thought an deliberation. The guy’s expression is one of “Nope, he doesn’t get it either”.
Lol. Anyway a fine spot and nicely captured scene.
On the advert, “Jump” really? Isn’t that what non-conformist employees were encouraged to do by moving them to a desk by a window?
That cigarette pack really is a perfect match, isn’t it? Always nice when little bits of a photo work out like that.
It does seem an odd choice of word. There are sadly still regular jumpers on the rail system too. Clearly supposed to be positive, but it doesn’t really come across that way…
