Waiting to shoot

.
There is one photo I forgot to show you from the open house at the President's residence.

Everyone was waiting for the music and dancing and speech-making to start on the stage in the big garden.
The sun was getting hot.
The official photographers were smoking and waiting and getting bored.
Or maybe I just thought so.
Please, enlarge the picture and tell me what impression you get from their faces and body language.
Anyway, it made me glad to have the freedom of being just an amateur photographer.

the professional photographers look like professional horses waiting in the box for the gate to open...that last final second when all is quiet and still and then "they're off"

it's always interesting to know what others see in a photograph

yes being an amateur photographer has it's advantages...our photographic moments occur everyday all day long

Yes, nobody parks US in a corner!

Those on the right look extremely bored...that group on the left looks like they could be telling juicy stories. I've never before noticed anyone holding his face quite like the guy in the brown shirt...

I guess these people are more than used to these (boring) waitings and I second you: glad I'm an amateur! :-)

It is indeed as you tell. Many times, being among those 'professionals' I get the feeling, that they do indeed hunt for this or that picture; leaving many times out mood and feeling of the place/situation.
Please have a good start into the weekend.

One hazard of such a job is the long hours just waiting. Then you have maybe seconds to get the shot. OK if the picture gets published I suppose.

Dina, I think they look "professionally" bored for the wait. Interesting shot.

I'd say a bit bored... waiting the 'show' to start.

Boredom?

Dina, re 'churches in the Anglican tradition'. Your link is eerily similar. For me, it is fascinating to know that there is an Anglican/Episcopal church in Jerusalem. It had not occurred to me that there might be one. How wonderful! I went to an ecumenical 'Assissi Peace Concert' last night. You would have loved it!

I think they are bored and tells jokes. I would prefer to be an amateur also:-)

I do believe boredom would be a good guess. I don't ever like waiting in the hot sun.
