I shot this with my P&S riding a chicken bus through Panama in 2005. The window light was just perfect when this older gentleman grabbed the seat back in front of us for balance. If I had to guess I'd say he was a farmer that had seen quite a few years working in the outdoors. His hand told the whole story. It is probably my favorite human pic from the whole three month adventure.
