This is my grandfather sitting in his workshop. When this challenge came up, I knew I wanted to shoot him. I may look like a huge mess on our rundown farm, but he knows the story behind every antique and "piece of junk" in there. He put it best when he said "My clutter is my peace."

My first vote was an 8. I'm bumping it to a 10 'cause I see now it's just a great photo in a great setting.

Looks like he has a LOT of stories to tell and that he's quite the "character". :) Nicely shot...love the framing
