Taking a Short Break

I haven’t shot much in the last few days, so here is a series-of-three from the archives. I was playing a bit with the second image, thinking of black-and-white, but in the end liked the pale look even better. I thought this would be a nice way to group three images in a series, so I started looking for others that fit.

I’m quite happy with this series, because there images are connected in several ways. The most obvious is the pale look, but also the three workers taking a break, looking a bit tired, looking towards the camera but not directly into the lens, all three shown in their typical surroundings along with their “tools”.

Should I change the color of the wall behind the tailor to match the pink areas of the first and third images? That would be one more “connection” between the images.
