An American

In reviewing recent photos, I have reconsidered some for preservation and publication, like this portrait of the Barber of Seville taken outside his shop on February 12, 2019. I initially discarded the image because eyeglasses and shadow from the dapper hat obscure his eyes. Removing distracting elements also meant cropping away part of his legs. But here we are recomposed. Was the choice wise?

I captured the Featured Image using Fujifilm GFX 50R and Fujinon GF63mmF2.8 R WR lens. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/8, ISO 100, 1/340 sec, 63mm; 9:29 a.m. PST.
