Walking along Carson Street on the South Side, a slight movement caught my eye. I stopped. The man on the phone looked up.
I “asked” if I could take a picture with mime-like camera, he gave a nod yes, went back to his phone as I fumbled in my bag for my real camera, not my iPhone. Had the settings wrong, took another one quick. Got his attention and acted like I was typing, conveying I would email it as I hurried back to my car across the street. I was thinking about the cookie jars in the second hand store across from the post office but I felt this was the shot of the day!
Well done on maximizing the opportunity – these are the most interesting kinds of photos 🙂
I love it!
Where did you learn to mime?
I love the name of the place.
Had you not mentioned the guy on the phone, I would have thought him to be a third mannequin. That’s some store, Ruth. I checked out their website and can’t quite figure out what they’re about.

He does look like a mannequin! Great shot – good eye!
I love how they’re all dressed so similarly.
2 LIVE-guys and 2 mannequins, right??? All in the window!!!! Or else that guy with the phone has LONG legs!! 🙂
Sorry! didn’t read the title: 2 mannequins / 2 men!

Love how you capture the moment.
It’s not often you catch people in the act of making up a store window – nice job!
