Just the shading distribution is itself worthy of our attention. The content is also interesting in itself.

Look at the pride and joy of the seller!

Feel the absorbed genuine interest of the explorer!

Who came before?

Who will follow?

What story does each have to tell?

So this picture although, "simple", is exceptional in its ability to continually interest us and not only demand revisiting, but make friends with!

Thank you Asher.
I know the buyer from many tears. He doesn't even know I have this photo of him.
He collects and sells antics. He has a warehouse full of old stuff...

This shot was done a couple of years ago.
He was guarding the building but as it was not yet time to be doing the job, I asked to take his photo. He was glad I did it.

Delightful! now what did you have him read?

If he wanted to look like a guard, how would you do it?
