Pat: A rather negative looking guy with his arms folded.
Earl: He has his arms folded because they couldn’t see the picture.
Agp.: They are making friendship.
Pat: The guy on the ground is trying to make contact.
Dot: The guy on the ground is shining his shoes. The guy getting his shoes shined is impatient.
Earl: About 3 or 4 of them.
James: What is he holding in his left arm?
Earl: it’s a glove/
Harold: Willie is on the ground. Mr. Miller in the chair.
Pat: What makes the man in the chair a “Mister” but Willie is just Willie?
Juan: Because Willie is just a shoe shiner.
Harold: Willie has his spot. He knows the fella in the chair cuz he shines his shoes every day or every other.
Pat: The guy who is getting his shoes shined doesn’t give a damn “Just shine my shoes and let me get on with it”. It looks like intentional contact by the one shining the shoes. And the other guy just wants his shoes shined but forget any other contact.
Catherine: Or wants him to hurry up. “I gotta go to work! 10’o clock”
Engardo: I see a smoking pipe.
Pat: They are about the same age. They are 40.
Cat: 40 or so.
Har: Late 40s/70s.
Catherine: I think they’re friends. Just like in the beauty salon. You have your special person who does your hair right. So this guy with the pipe knows the one on the scooter. They are friends. He knows he’ll go to him and do a good job. He will do the best job he can for his friend.
Pat: I think that’s jumping to conclusions. The man with the pipe is controlling once the picture does not give us an answer to that question.
Pat: The guy who is doing the shoe shining is much friendlier than the other one.
Catherine: the people around him are on their way to work.
Harold: they are in downtown. They are acquaintances. He knows where to get his shoes shined. Mr. Miller is concentrated on something could be a marital prob.
Pat: I think it’s jumping to conclusions. He’s concentrating…
Thomas: It’s in Chicago.
Catherine: Cleveland or Detroit.
Harold: The man is doing his job, but trying to his attention. His looking a Mr. Miller, saying “What’s wrong?” Pipe in math, thinking how to solve it.
Catherine: He’s sharing a story with the other guy. Maybe his dtr. Got married or lost a member of the family. It is interesting to him. Sharing it like in a sorority.
Harold: Maybe his dtr. wants to get married.
Pat: The posture of the other guy says, “I could careless.”
Thomas: He could be reluctant to tell.
Pat: “just shine my shoes man.”
Catherine: He might have gotten a big tip.
Pat: The tip hasn’t been made yet. This guy looks like he wouldn’t give one.
Juanita: He will give a tip. He might not be a guy who wouldn’t give a tip.
Pat: He is not tipping the person he is tipping the service.
Juanita: The guy is impatient b/c he is late to work.
Pat: He mad at his wife for making him leave late. He always need someone to blame, but himself.
Cat: Wide maybe late dropping the kids off and she put it on him. She might be a teacher. (about 3-4 grade)
Pat: Maybe 7th grade.
Pat: He see himself as Mr. Jones, but he hates when people call him Willie. The one on the scooter wants to share something with him.
Pat: He isn’t receptive.
