Held by the afternoon

This guy seemed really edgy and nervous. He had boxed himself in between two buildings behind a sculpture and was sucking on what was apparently one of many cigarettes. He couldn’t stand still. He spit. He puffed. He looked into the light for only a second, and I snapped this photo. Then he looked right at me and watched me snap a second. I didn’t wait to find out if he was unhappy with me shooting him, but continuing on down the street I checked the back of the camera, which showed him looking mostly peaceful with his eyes closed. They both captured a shattered stained glass window and its reflection behind him.
