The second cup on the table seems to be of a different height, may be as well of a different drink. So I guess that his company took a toilet break, possibly?

Great picture though.

Remembering? Regretting? Thinking, 'what if...?'
We shall never know, and our thoughts can change every time we revisit the image...

I've seen that look. It's so sad. Makes me want to talk to him. Love the lighting and tones.

This image is well captured. The natural directional lighting is superb. As your title suggested, he does look a bit in his own world. Bravo. Deserves much accolade and awards.

Great photo, reckon he was not alone with two cups on the table maybe he is bored waiting for his wife to come back from the ladies room. That said as a widow I have had all three meals a day alone since my husband died so know the feeling of loneliness.

for his age, certainly retired . no active travelling salesman anymore Smile
but widower? mind the second cup of tea on the table! - maybe his wife just left him after 40 years of matrimonial strife Smile
