Contemplation

Contemplation

I was fascinated by the studious gaze of this elderly gentleman. It is the tradition in Lewis to post the death notices on sheets of paper in shop windows. I wondered whether he was noting the passing of someone or just weighing up which chop he fancied for his supper that night. I like to think it was the latter.
