notice the mans expression behind him
"We desire objects […] in terms of [their] distance as something not-yet-enjoyed, the subjective aspect of this condition being desire. […] The object thus formed, which is characterized by its separation from the subject, who at the same time establishes it and seeks to overcome it by his desire, is for us a value. The moment of enjoyment itself, when the separation of subject and object is effaced, consumes the value. Value is only reinstated as contrast, as an object separated from the subject. Such trivial experiences as that we appreciate the value of our possessions only after we have lost them."

Georg Simmel, Philosophy of Money. 3rd edition. London: Routledge, p. 66.
