Thousands upon thousands of these shops up and down the country... all run by hard working 'long hours' owners and staff. I think they are thinking of getting home to their family. Or maybe hoping for a day of polite customers and a good turnover.
Hey Bill, great insight... Im sure he most me worried about the state of the economy.... No one was in the shop...
Nice shot Gerry, really captures the humanity of your subject, can't help but feel empathetic toward him, and to think, as Bill notes, of the long hours, worries, and probably modest pay this kind of work entails.
