Just the everyday occurrence of getting ones face shaved, I suppose.

Bob I enjoyed this photograph very much.
An everyday moment shown so well. I miss our barbers here in the uk using cut-throat razors - guidelines though i don't think laws brought in as a response to HIV - on me the razor used not to shave but to finish the hair after a singe. The photo also takes me back way back to when dad took me for my first hair cut at the barbers rather than going with mum to her hairdresser.
He took me to Lou Burgin's, on the first floor walkway, the indoor market,above seafood and offal.
An onlooker, listening, learning.

Hi Bob, compositionally this one has a kick like a mule - love the compoex layering of razors across the frame. Color and contrast wise it could do with a bit of pep, but it is a delightful image, smartly done.

I love the expressions on the faces here. I am not sure about the cropping, unfortunately I can't think of a better way to do so except for taking a little off the right.
It certainly looks like a busy place. If I'm ever in Bangladesh, perhaps I'll give this a go for the sake of the experience.
