This Neapolitan man seemed ready to have this photo taken. I love the way he's part of his shop (rich of typical, DELICIOUS foods), defending it in a way, while also looking very humble and kind. Family-owned foodshops are unfortunately progressively disappearing in Italy, especially in big cities like Naples. I wouldn't be surprised if this man's sons decided to shut the activity...

what a vivid, colorful photo, so crowded, almost falling at you :) and love the bothe humble yet proud posture of the shop owner, very well portrayed with such a positive emotion.
all the best,

A colorful image, looking indoors of this food-shop,
rich in details, well collected.
The man face expression, as you noted, is an eye-catching on this fabulous photo.

une bien belle image que cet homme dans son royaume de plastiques et de couleurs. c'est un autre monde: son monde.

I really like your framing here - the deeper colours further into the shop integrate him into the scene, his business, so well he becomes inseparable. His character comes through so well, lovely!
