A few times a week I pass this location. In fact, I pass by a few times a day depending on how much running around I have to do when I am not in the studio. It has been about 2 years now since I have seen this composition. Today, (image on the left) the window was open and the curtain was knotted. I passed by saying “today is the day I make the photograph.” So, I ran and grabbed my camera and went back and spoke with the barber shop owner. Delighted, he took a seat and posed as how he can be found sitting on most days.

It may have taken two years for the right moment to happen. But it is an image that I have not forgotten about. There is a moral to this article, never forget about the simple compositions and if you see the right moment, do not pass up on it. After 2 years I am finally satisfied with having made this photograph.
