I like these "slice of life" shots, they are very telling. The mood you set here is very expressive.

Wonderful shot!!

I don't see many shoe repair shops here in the states any more. I don't know about others, but our family wears our shoes until they're in a state of disrepair!

Great photo showing him doing his work!

A good capture of an interesting working man shot. This will be a good shot for me to recall when I'm in the mood to complain about the shabby state of my classroom. Others don't have life so easy.

Very nice street shot. This is becoming a lost art in the US.

Nice shot PT, i always have troubles doing this type of shot because i always think i'm intruding in their private sphere! You have captured it beautifully.

Best wishes Neil

You catch an everyday scene in Thailand. Im wondering where they got the knowledge ton repair shoes ... they are wearing flipflops everywhere :-)

Great shot. I like the composition, so full of things all around. His wrinkled hands reflect how hard he has worked for a long time.
