Here in Pennsylvania, one can only buy liquor at a "state store" --- (state run business---fancy way to get revenue without taxing people)
Your store look lovely and interesting!

A fine candid, Kate: one that begs a question about the fellow's circumstances.
Given that it seems sunny with strong shadows, I am a but surprised at some of the EXIF 1/20 sec. at f/11.

Well spotted and captured, Kate, I think he would be better off sitting outside a men's clothing store, he looks badly in need of a new pair of jeans for the winter Smile Carol

Funny they sell Scotch and Irish I see by the sign. Poor man is staring at the barrel hoping a kind soul will tap it for him. LOL.
I love candid shots and this is a "beauty".

Good candid that makes a story, Kate. He's just exaggerated the fashion, that's all. He looks happy.

An excellent shot Kate but a rather sad reflection of the times to me. People can always find money for booze and cigarettes but cannot afford a decent pair of jeans, Just my take.SadSadSadSad

the jeans are probably worth a fortune Smile Suggested to swap my old work jeans for a meal once.. after I saw what my young employee had bought for a lot of money
maybe he wants to trade them in for the barrel.
A great capture of this fine spirit shop front.
With a great character to set it off. Nicely processed
and magic colours. Well done Kate.

He doesn't look like a homeless person to me, i think he's just taking a rest in the heat and contemplating what he's going to buy from the Liquor store. As for those jeans what a state they are in, I know that Scotsmen are renowned for being tight and not spending any cash but this takes the biscuit!WinkGrin
