I was sitting on a bench at the park reading early in the morning. All of a sudden I realize I am hungry and it is noon. I go home to eat lunch and see this guy painting from the bridge. I eat, get camera, go back to park. It is now 1 in the afternoon. Worst for light. So I shoot some, wait for a cloud to pass in front of the sun, shoot a few more, so on and so forth. This is the shot I chose.

Nice crop! (didn't vote since I saw it previously... but I love it)

This is a wonderful capture - very natural and unposed. The monotone effect is a huge plus and gives this image a sense of time and place long past. If there was one nitpick, it would be the rock in the foreground - I might have cropped the rock out and just gone with the dog and painter - the foreground rock doesn't really do anything for the image other than lengthen it and in this case, while it doesn't detract too much, it's really not necessary to complete the image. Well done.
