An homage to Robert Adams

This is yet another photo from my Monday evening outing. Although it is not as obvious from this small .jpg version as I'd hoped, the man sitting at a desk in front of a computer monitor reminded me of Robert Adams' famous photo (http://www.aperture.org/exposures/?p=106) except that this photo was taken at night.

Note: While I was tempted to move closer and reframe this composition a bit more tightly, I ultimately decided against doing so because I realized that while I can legally photograph anything I can see from a public space, there are exceptions to this when the photo involves photographing people inside their houses, and the last thing I need is to be labeled a "Peeping Tom." (Although this photo was taken two houses down the street from mine, I can't recall ever having met the people who live there ... sort of strange, eh?)
