    Looks like he’s knocking on the door and maybe even ringing the bell on that house.

    Ptown, I’m inclined to agree with you. And to my eyes the tats on the bottom pics match the tats on the top pics as well. And the bottom right pic of the man doesn’t match the man in the color photo. Not quite sure what is going on.
