Music has always been an essential part of human life, from singing to playing all kinds of musical instruments. This photograph is very striking and there is a level of humanity attached to it and it looks like an image from the 50s or 60s. The man is either sitting out on the porch of his run down house or he is working on the house. Either way, he finds time to play his guitar to feed his soul after a hard days work. I find this image to be an uplifting image because it points to the fact that regardless of what’s going on around “one” there is a always hope. The photograph has beautiful lights and shadows. The shadow on the door emphasizes the “darkness” in the house. The steps are falling apart, the man’s shoes look warn and the bucket or basin all together describes a lifestyle. The rule of thirds is evident in the composition of the photograph. The man sit at the left third and also the bottom third of the photograph.
