  7. I love this. It tells such a story, and the story is probably different to each one of us based on our life experience. Such a dapper man. Really great, evocative shot James. Kathy

  8. One can almost wonder if you went back to the Great Depression to catch this... or with 10% unemployment, are we in another great depression?

  11. Sad, but beautyful picture!
    the way the man is dressed, a little out of time, makes the scene looks like a 50 or 60ies one..

  12. He has so cool and clean clothes, which is a nice contrast to the surroundings. He must be a jazz man.
