the observer

I don’t know a single thing about training to become a boxer, but I can tell you that this young man spent the entire workout here and didn’t spar with any of the other men at the gym, which gave me the impression that perhaps he was just starting out.

But the actual, real reason I made this photo is that the woman watching him had an uncanny resemblance to my late mother-in-law. (And if it had been my mother-in-law, she would have offered plenty of advice to that young boxer. If you know what I mean.)
