Photo of the Day: Lamar the butcher

Lamar the butcher, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
This is a photo that turned out way better than I had any right to expect. I captured this image while waiting for the Eatonville Christmas Parade to begin; we had parked ourselves in front of the Double T Meat Market, and I was passing the time as I usually do, idly taking pictures of anything that looked interesting. I'd been trying to take a picture of Lamar through the windows of the store for some time, but every time I braced myself for a low-light shot, someone would step in front of the camera and I'd miss the opportunity. Finally I stood in the doorway itself and shot through the glass door, leaning on the door frame for stability, and managed a single shot between customers. The picture was good in color, but works even better in sepia, as it lends an old fashioned, small town feel to the image. I don't know where the slight vignetting on the left comes from, but it adds to the picture too!
