The Stare

Street Photography, staring back, black and white, people watching, humorous situations
I am not a street photographer, but when I saw this gentleman sitting with his back against the statue of the chef, and noticed how much they look alike (the white shirt, chubby cheeks and beer belly) I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take his picture. I snapped a couple of pictures and that got his attention, so he turned his head and gave me that look of curiosity and mild annoyance. My first instinct was to put he camera down, but instead I snapped one more picture. I am glad I did, because his stare is so expressive it overshadows everything else in the picture. It is the picture. What do you all think?

  5. I think it is a perfect capture, and also, from the look of the guy, lucky he did not come over to have a talk with you! They do look alike for sure. Made me laugh
