A fortunate coincidence for sure. More times than not this would have become a throw away or I would have cropped differently. This time I was thankful.

You would think, but no, it really doesn't. I spent significant time with it in B&W and while the subject looked great I couldn't get the opposing face to do much other than blend in with the background, and I wanted it to stand out at least a little rather than just be there to be discovered.

Why, does he look like me? ;) No. Nothing posed here. Hadn't seen him before, haven't seen him since.

Ordinarily I would say the man's face in the foreground on the right should have been left out, but the way it fits into the scene is great. I like this a lot.
