Forever young.

A capricious breeze passes, ruffling his hair as the image is taken.

This shot works on a personal level, but also because of the mirroring going on:  the sprawling “limbs” of the metal bars echo the branching tree limbs on the opposite side of the frame.

In reality, I crouched down and peered through the viewfinder, taking advantage of the wide-ish perspective offered by my 35mm lens and dynamically composed my shot until things looked just right.
