A very satified looking customer. Works well in b/w, the focus is on people.

The jolly looking chap on the right hand side reminds me of Billy Cotton (Wakey Wakey). Another well composed example of good photo journalism.

Love his expression
He does look pleased with himself, does he think it's just him in the photograph?

What a happy chappie, made me smile.

I am not surprised he looks so contented Moira,
surrounded by all these women.
Especially as his wife is back in the house !!

That expression is PRICELESS and totally makes this shot. Beautifully positioned in this composition too.
