- The Shopkeeper - (Full Colours Only + Border + Title Watermark)

Challenge #175 in the I'm Only Human, Of Flesh and Blood I'm Made... series. Hosted by ConanFuji.
Challenge has finished
Take a photo of ONE adult shopkeeper or appears to be running a shop inside, outside, beside the shop which appears to be operating from a fixed property. It would be great to have a faceshot with the whole body, but if it's not possible then other weaker shots would also be accepted. Silhouettes shots do not qualify, my apologies. There can be other people provided they are insignificant to the shot and blurred/small/far away and does not distract from the 'shopkeeper'. You may enter up to 2 entries, provided they are different person. Photo can be taken with any camera, i.e DSLR, SLR, Mirrorless, Compact, Smartphone, etc... Please include a border and an appropriate title watermarked on the photo itself.

I would have almost missed this man had he not called out to me urging me to buy something from the shop. The avenue was a shopping haven and the profusion of shops made for a very entertaining experience. With so many shops vying for the customer’s attention, it was a matter of who stood out amongst the rest in terms of being the brightest, biggest, posh-est, most decorative, cheapest, etc. Yet this spunky man, nondescriptly camouflaged amongst the mannequins, caught my attention because I could not resist the lure of a “model” jump at me. I was compelled to buy some clothes at this shop impressed with their marketing strategy. This guard’s objective was to attract customers and he did that well indeed!
