Independence

One of those pictures you see as you are passing and have very little time to prepare to take.

Great shot. The background is wonderful and the subject just perfect. I'm impressed that you have your camera handy enough to get this before it was too late. I'm not sure I could have been that quick.

So much in this photograph. A whole history of the old man set against a fascinating background.

You had your camera with you and that was prepared enough to capture this moment in time. Rule #1 is you can't get the picture if you don't have your camera. Well done!

Nice shot! I know how fast you prepared your camera to take this.

Excatly what I've been saying that timing, spotting the potential and composing the image. It's a fabulos image especially with the background. It would be a fabulous timeless balck and white too.
