This is the appropriate photo to close out 2021. Here is the back story. I shot this on an Ocean City bus in the summer of 2021. The background is the divider from the lower to upper portion of the bus. This crazy guy with the Joker mask (we had to wear masks on the city bus) gets on the bus and he agrees to allow me to shoot his portrait. I liked the color version, but it had some wild distracting reflections off his sunglasses. Two different photo critics told me they liked the photo, but the reflection was just too much. Solution - get rid of the sunglass glare and make it a BnW photo. The BnW version was then juried into a portrait exhibit and hung at the Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece in February 2022.
