Being There

I am especially impressed by this photo- -- it feels as though the viewer has been transported through time and this man is going to get up and go about his business any second. You can practically hear him breathing. Amazing.

Close...

Pretty close, but not the same. Look at the shape of the ear lobe.

Same Man?

Is that the same man getting the physical in the previous photo? It sure looks like him!
