Just a Couple of Gents (GIF) Eating Noodles
Off to the left of these guys eating, is a collection of Zippo lighters in glass cases.
Entering the tatami room, I left my flip-flops outside the door and, excused myself.
A waitress, had just brought the two steaming bowls of Okinawa soba, to serve the men.
It's a pretty small dining area and, I had to step back to let the girl pass by me.
She asked if I wanted to place an order bit, I really wasn't hungry.
Speaking Japanese, I asked if it was alright, to take photos of the display.
The old fellows, didn't appear too happy, seeing a foreigner in the place.
But, seeing, I was being polite, respectful and, talking their language, must have helped.
Going back outside, I figured, "What the heck maybe, I'll get a photo of them eating."
They agreed, to let me shoot and, started flipping peace signs.
Then, I asked them, to just at natural and, go on eating the soba.
Click, click, click six times and, I thanked them while going back out the door.
A series of six images, were used, to create this animated GIF.
