“maybe that’s why i’m partly yellow
it’s no excuse, though
it really isn’t
what you should be is not yellow at all”

frites with your cabbage?
(belgian frites, magdalenastwg, brussel)
*shot with iPhone 5, edited in Aperture 3, applied black and white filter then brushed colour back in to add a pop of yellow, cabbage smoke inspired*

Thanks, I’ll have my cabbage neat though. I love selective colour. Yellow is almost as powerful as red. It’s funny how the two poor men look one like another, so expressionless. I suppose I’d rather be cleaning houses than frying chips. Something about fast food scares me.
I think I too would develop a fixed and blank stare if I had to serve fries all day and be shot by a man in black…And, I never used to like cabbage but it can grow on you. I see yellow every day working where I do, and see red often enough also…
I don’t eat cabbage but I don’t object to smoking it. I normally see black and have been experiencing some red vision recently. It must be in the air or what.
There is certainly something in the air of late…
Amongst other things.
Why do you see yellow so often? (Mind boggles) I would get a headache wearing a t shirt that colour and have to eat the fries to make myself feel better lol! Did you get dinner there or just go and shoot them? X
Yellow is my company’s corporate colour…..
I did eat some of the fries…after shooting them, maybe the wrong sequence?
you shot the fries? haha
I hate frites although the Dutch are the best btw… LLBS the Belgians would kill me for that; but it’s okay as I wouldn’t stand having to do this job. I’m joining Mara’s cleaning company…
I feel an international incident looming here….out of the frying pan, into the fire?
Not really; it was the Brazilian speaking…passport at hand, going to the airport…leaving Europe. Pleasure to have met you!
Off to Patagonia?
The best option! Will hide at the wilderness. No frites there!
There may be others risks though, take care!
Thank you! Good tip! 😜🐯
Photo is great. Colour is very cool – it’s the perfect shade to properly “pop”. But yes they are quite mournful-looking fellas, aren’t they?
Thank you! think they look how I would feel in their place?
Another reason to convert to a Mac
Never looked back!
Thanks for reminding me to pick up Salinger and finally finish “Catcher..” in it’s original version (have only read it in Latvian). Great photo – you captured perfectly the expression that is so common for people selling fast food + gaufres as well… I always wonder why – you feed people – make them happy – smile a little… Except may be Flagey market where they are kind of a bit more happy (if that’s even possible in Belgium 😉 season’s greetings from Ixelles, S.
Thank you, must confess that I would look glum were I to be serving fries all day….
greetings in return, also, from Ixelles / Elsene
This kind of photography is fun. I too am experimenting with black and white with color pop… Heheh I used the same quote for an old prompt called yellow. Anything Salinger is always great. Great post!
Thank you, great minds think alike 😉 ?
Hehe yep! 😊
