I like the way you managed to capture the women in the background working on a customer's hair. On the surface, you can simply look at it as an atmosphere shot.

On a more symbolic level, it makes a statement about the way life continues. Even as this longtime employee prepares to exit the stage, the play continues. The show must go on.
