When I spotted this guy he was smiling, and when I asked him if it would be OK if I photographed him he nodded and continued to smile. As soon as I pointed my camera at him though he adopted this rather serious expression and, despite my best efforts, stared fixedly into the middle distance for the time it took me to take a few shots. When I showed him the images he smiled.
So, hardly the most natural of portraits. And, while it would have been nice if his expression had matched the figure in the background, I think the contrast works OK too. Let me know what you think.
