I like the way he's glancing at the magnifying glass. I don't know why, but the expression he has almost makes me thing he's thinking 'Oh darling, please. That's most certainly a bit of dried blood and not an ink stain' at it. ...Which he would never think, but it's still amusing to me.
how I do love this fictional man. I am reading Sir Doyle's Sherlock Holmes short stories as of now. They are interesting but I really want to get to his more popular writings like the "Study in Scarlet".
