Small town barber

3rd place
Strolling the streets of small town Pennsylvania I walked past this old fashioned barber shop and noticed the barber giving this small boy a haircut while his father looked on. I pointed at my camera to ask permission through the barbershop window. Dad nodded OK just as the boy turned his head around to look at me. We made eye contact and I fired this one shot. Perfect timing I guess. Love that moment when it all comes together. Later I went back to give prints to the barber and the boiys family. My last visit to this small town and the old barbershop is gone. Sad.

Notes: The only technical comment is I had a circular polarizer on my lens. This was critical because I was shooting the picture through a plate glass window. The polarizer cut down reflections.
