      Great bit of observation and a very good capture. What IS in a doorman's mind? He looks as though he has just remembered a fairly sultry moment.

      Thanks very much Emerick! The only thing I know is that he laughed just after I snapped this picture.

      great portrait, amazing expression on his face, like a parent looking a misbehaving child.

      Thanks very much Ziemowit!
      I like the misbehaving child thing, especially because he was looking right at me :-)

      I don't have much time to shoot, develop and process my pictures since I started my assistant professor position. When things are more settled, I should have more time to refocus on my photography.

      Great shot! Simple composition, but yet powerful. Also the guy has great expression too!
