    I noticed a pair of biking shoes (red and silver to the left) and a helmet together with other sports equipment like a backpack, water bottle, etc. This may be signs of this being a photo taken moments after a bike race. It may have been an off-road race due to their clothing and loads of equipment which is mainly for off-road purposes.

    Seems to me like a guy who’s waiting at a plane station and has laid down to rest. I doubt its that tho..

  3. Its a cyclist chilling after a hard ride maybe

    Looks like the person, which I thick is a man, is finished with some kind of activity, and is exhausted. My guess would be cycling, mainly because I can see his suit and several cycling helmets. I see all of his tattoos, but they do not give me any special connotations.

  5. I think this might be a picture of a man laying on the floor in a fitness studio, or something like that. There are waterbottles, shoes and clothing around him, and that is what makes me think of a fitness studio.

  6. I think it looks like a man laying down exhausted after some sort of activity most likely some sort of climbing, hence the pouch assumably filled with lime for better gripping.

  7. I think its a cyclist just chillin on the subway/train station, just waiting to take off and get up in the mountains so he can bike.

    Due to the bottles and his tight shorts (obviously made for activity) this person is attending at some race. I’d say this is prior to the race, given by his relaxed muscles. The bikers around him (bikers because of their pants and the guy in the down-left corner has regular sturdy biker’s shoes) are probably friends of the guy (the toes are definitely a man’s… I hope) in the middle. It’s probably a long and acknowledged race due to the preparations they’ve made.

  9. It looks like a sports athlete taking a rest surrounded by his support team after a though competition. I noticed a lot of sports gear, which made me think he is a cyclist or tennis player.

    I think it looks like a cyclist who is relaxing after finishing a race, but I do think there’s a bit more to the photo than that. I’m not sure why he’s surrounded by those people though. Maybe they’re his friends.
