This was taken inside a retail store, that, and the fact that I didn't want him to see me taking his picture, is why it ended up being "canted". I didn't notice the "missing" finger until I started processing the image. As much as a lopped off finger might add to the mystery of the photograph, I suspect that it is hooked with his thumb out of view. Addressing Dr. Ted's tongue-in-cheek crit, I doubt that I would have looked at this image file a second time if it WASN'T crooked. That aspect makes it a photograph in my estimation. .
