Cool pic. I think I would have put a lit cigarette in his left hand. Just saying.

Norton wanted to be photographed with his hands completely covering his face. I EVENTUALLY got his hands to a place where I could see his eyes. This was an unusual sitting, very quick and no prep. I consider myself very lucky to have gotten this image. Just sayin' :)
