It seems to me as if the gentleman in this photo is dancing, a solo two-step perhaps. 

Moreover it is a very beautiful moment in time and I am glad that someone took the time to capture it.

As a high school student with a passion for photography, I always turn to National Geographic for inspiration. And it never fails me! My work can be found here: http://maireadkahn.wordpress.com/

Nostalgia is a town that looks bitter sweet.

Nice place to look at, not sure I would want to live there.
