The man in the tower

Ron notes: I could just catch a glimpse of a man in Muay Thai trunks practicing Muay Thai moves inside the tower. It was strange because the door to the tower seemed to be padlocked from the outside. I knocked on the door to get his attention, but he did not seem to hear me.
I tried to take a photo of the man through the crack in the door as he walked back and forth, but each time it seemed I could not capture his image on film. Thinking I must be going crazy, I went outside and waited a long time until the man peeked out from the tower. The photo on the right is a highly lightened detail of the image on the left to show the man. Strangely enough, the man had each of his eyebrows painted red.
