Mel’s Barber Shop

Another in the Commerce Street series. As I was taking this shot the owner opened the door and confronted me.

“Why are you photographing my shop?” he demanded.

I explained I was a street photographer and taking pictures of interesting neighborhoods was what I did.

He didn’t seem convinced or impressed. In this post 9-11 age no one is above suspicion–not even benign old street photographers.

Speaking of suspicion–if the shop is called “Mel’s”–why did the owner tell me his name was “Antonio?”
