As temperatures in the South of Germany climbed to record heights, an ice cream in the shade provides welcome refreshment.

The City Daily Photo theme for September is “People Watching”. Click here for other participants.

  1. An icecream is always welcome. This picture is really great in b&w. Fantastic contribution to the theme day.

  2. I love this, Paul. They are, each of them, wrapped up in a simple pleasure and gone off in their own headspace. The woman in the foreground is just superb.

  4. I love this shot. I feel a kinship with the older woman – icecream can be so therapeutic!

  5. They look like they’re watching, enjoying ice cream treat, and thinking. B&W is best choice.

  6. the B&W takes away all distractions – but that woman in the foreground better hurry out of her reverie and get back to the melting ice cream!
