I think it captured a nice slice of life, much more along the lines of quirky SonC than artiste BD. I like the shot. It would have, of course been a better shot with a Leica black paint MP and a new summilux, but hey, it was a nice catch.

As it is it's an idea more than a photo. Unfortunately, between the peacocks, the table and umbrella, the other people, etc., it's too damned cluttered an image to work as I assume you wanted it to work. I have to really struggle to see the camera in the hooks. Beyond that, there's the question of what makes this 'special' other than the fact that the guy without arms is using his hooks to take a picture. My guess is he wouldn't think it was a worthy of a photo - given what armless, and legless people can accomplish, taking photos comes in pretty low on the humdrum list. So.... :-) B. D.
