Quotography: Photography

This is one of those pictures where I wish I'd switched lenses, had a wide angle, or just backed up a bit... but I didn't. I'd affixed my 50mm, and that's all I had.  And so, I'm left with a picture that is brutally chopped.  Yet the more I look at it, the more it attracts me.  I think I actually like this portrait, in spite of - or because of - its imperfections.
bad photo?
{Ok... so there's no attribution for this "quote."  Honestly, I can't recall whether I made it up as a variation of "there are no stupid questions..." or if I read/heard it somewhere.  I googled it.  Nothing.  So hopefully the genius behind the statement forgives me this slight.}

I think its perfect just as it is- the quote works perfectly in the negative space! (And is that a real vintage camera, or a prop? Either way- I love it!)
