There were a couple of times I entertained the idea of owning a shop someday. More often than not I’d dismissed it because it’s not a walk in the park. There are scary details to address, like rent, hires and financing that do a good job blowing away any wishful thought bubbles above my head. That may be why I like to take photos of shop owners. If there are workers in a shop, I’d usually observe and attempt to pick out the owner before setting my sight to photograph. This gentleman exuded a sense of pride standing in front of his shop. He deserves such an air and have my respect.
