A man first: hours before a U.S. Navy sailor's overseas deployment

The picture was taken inside a coffee shop just two hours before this man was scheduled to fly out to his next U.S. naval station. He spent his last hours with family and friends. I think black and white captures his youth, his composure, and his concerns of the upcoming overseas deployment. All of these elements work together to display this man's evocative handsomeness.
