    It’s my favourite skinny sumo!! Probably more suited to marathon running, but good on him all the same. Wonderful crowd capture Rhoufi, lots of animated expressions!

  • Thanks Georgie… it sure was a happy bunch. Love the guy down the bottom taking a close-up of his back!!!!

  • Well madame, the truth is, to get this photo I had to agree to be the skinny sumo’s opponent. So yes you guessed it, they were laughing at me!!. I’ll do anything for a photo, anything. Merci ;-)

    LoL! Sumo my eye! Brilliant!

  • Thank you Berns – well I think he was pretty much a wannabe; he laughed as he was flung out of the ring ;-)

    LOL.I saw him too .It is what you call confidence and high self esteem! I didn’t stay long enough to see him fight : ) Great shot! Love the woman behind him,I think she couldn’t stop laughing-she was biting her lips .

  • Yes you were rushing off that day, and I didn’t think I had much until later, but these struck me as pretty intense. Thanks Pat

    How did I miss this delightful image? RB falling down on the job—not notified…bah ;((
    This is too funny…love the story that accompanies this slice-of-life. and especially love the delighted faces on the Asian spectators except for the dismayed one at the very top right corner.
    He just can’t belief the nerve of such a skinny, hope-filled guy.
    Love this work, Rhoufi

  • And how did I miss your comment? I don’t think anyone could believe this skinny runt was going to tackle a full size Sumo. I just love the expressions. Thank you daor Sass :-)
