This is a great shot, and it is true... each table has a possible story that everyone's imagination will tell differently.

I think the guy smoking the cigarette and reading the paper is the a-hole boss of the man looking at him in disdain from the middle table. He just happened to show up at the same spot for a bit of breakfast and coffee, which has ruined our center man's morning already. Naturally the two men at the table to the far right are the French FBI keeping their eyes on the same a-hole boss while the case is building (unbeknownst to our disgruntled hard working center man).

love the story you can think up....
guy in foreground: "who the hell is this guy taking my picture? I'll just pretend I don't see him, read my paper, and hide behind my cigarette.
younger couple in background: woman turns her back as she is camera shy. Husband gives the evil eye to the guy with the cigarette as he upset about the second hand smoke.
older couple in background: old guy "dammit, maybe if I hunch over a bit and keep my shades on he won't recognize me from the wanted poster in the post office. woman sips her coffee as she begins to raise paper up to help hide her felon husband.

My fav part of this shot is how the guy in the background is giving someone (you?) the side eye! I like this shot- great shadows- interesting/ real life moment- perspective.

Nice detail. Looks as if you placed your camera on your table and secretly snapped a shot, like a spy.

Interesting scene. I like it. Two people reading the paper and another two not looking at each other and then the one guy looks like he's saying something. Looks like you just set the camera on the table and casually took the shot.

Different than the typical USA soda fountain counter experience and good choice to use black and white processing.
