Thank you commenters and voters! I liked this picture rather a lot... It is, in fact, far more intriguing than the story immediately behind it, or even than the story leading up to it, or even the funny story following it.

Oh, more comments and faves! How delightful. - Alas, I cannot really tell any good stories without sacrificing another's privacy. Possibly I am being overscrupulous, but the most important thing is what you all have brought to this scene. As Jutilda said, it is a random candid, except that I had the foresight to be carrying the "mighty little lumix."

Melethia deserves some of the blame for that - the lumix; as well this photo is prolly 1st cousin to many of hers.

Just looking back on some of my old favorites and noticed I didn't comment on this one.

I enjoy how the three subjects are all individual but connected in many ways, almost as if they can each tell their own story but perhaps we are looking at something more like a Grandmother/Mother/Son situation with each in their own thoughts......lots to see in this one, great work

She looked like she burned her tongue...maybe the soup was just too hot! ;-)

Yas, and the thought that she could have stayed home and made one so much better, aye carumba, what WAS she thinking.

No Comment Chicken Soup

2 Tbsp butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 medium carrots, thinly sliced
3 medium parsnips, peeled and sliced
1 medium leek, sliced
7 cups chicken broth
1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill weed
1/2 tsp salt

Melt butter in Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook onions, carrots, parsnips, leek in butter, stirring occasionally until carrots are tender. Stir in broth and pasta. Heat to boiling and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until pasta is tender. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer 5 minutes or until hot.

Clearly she had an inferior soup.

I never got through the FS voting but this sparkles for me up there somewhere.
Terrific tones too.

Oh. My. Gawd. Don debauches? Who knew?

Would love to hear the stories. This really is the best photo of the past month. And with the mighty little Lumix! I need to charge my battery and get mine out to play.

this would have gotten a blue ribbon if I hadn't been debauching last night.

I'm glad this got a 6+ score. I gave it a 7. It made me wonder what kind of interesting story was going on here. Looks like there might actually be three stories instead. Very cool.

Looks like a scene from a drama. Nice capture!!

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Wow, if there was any more story in this picture it would be a novel! This is terrific stuff, the woman in the foreground looks distraught and I want to dwell on her but instead my eye is drawn away from her unfocussed face to the middle-ground man. He is indifferent to her; and by pulling our eyes away from her to him I feel complicit in his callousness. I don't want to ignore her, but I can't help it. The background woman is also an important element - she adds to the scene considerably since her presence ensures the viewer knows this is a public space. Amongst all this, we forget you, the photographer - but once we think about you, your camera and your presence - the viewpoint itself and what that means to the scene seem very important. I like your processing choices too.

Critical stuff: Nothing.

Overall: Super image. Great stuff.

The expression on the woman in the foreground really tells a story. Very intriguing.

Lot of character here, I hope everyone else sees the story, 10. Good luck.

Very nice image. The picture tells a story. Nice color tone.

Oddly appealing somehow. There seems to be a story implied by the scene.

remarkable capture of life

I like the sense of random candidness. :) The invisible line connecting the people is cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The tones caught my eye which caused me to stop and look. I don't know what it is but I like it. Must be the story telling feel that you have achieved. Each person seems to be in the own world. Don't know if this was planned or not but the leading line you have achieved starting from the lady in the fore front to the lady in the back is fantastic. Well done.

while I like the toning that you have applied here I cannot help but think that maybe the better photograph would have been a tighter crop around the three people, I don't think that the empty table on the right is adding much, and it might be tricking your camera into overexposing this how shot as I think too much of the highlights have been blown out.
