I saw this man sitting in a little alley while driving my motorcycle. Turned back and composed my shot. I had to go very high in ISO as it was very dark and couldn't use a flash.
That place was so quiet when I turned off the engine. Still wondering what this guy was doing alone there. Shirtless, shorts and flip flops...This was my second picture and he stared at me, his face was spooky. Back home I let my wife see this picture and she said it's a ghost...

Both quiet and dramatic, as it's hard to tell what this man is feeling in this scene of lovely, balanced contrasts. He's so shadowed that he's as much a suggestion as a focal point, which makes this image so moving and intriguing. Very fine.
