Ok guys since people still keep saying its himself we will do it step by step

I am looking at somebody's photo. Who is it I am looking at, if I don't have any brothers or sisters and the father of that man on the photo is the son of my father?

ok lets start will start off with me then work back

1. we have me looking a a picture

2. i have No siblings

3. my father's son= ME since i am an only child! No argument there right?

4. That guy's father is my father's son

5. so if my father's son= me then it really reads

that guys father is me

6.so that guy is my son

I once was at an exposition, where a man pointed at a portrait and said: I have no brothers, but HIS father is a son of MY father.

The portrayed man was clearly his son, because it couldn't be his nephew. If it were his nephew, after all, then the man talking would have had at least one brother - the father of the portrayed man!

The current riddle is analogous: you're looking at a photograph of your son!

(Actually, one could have dozens of sisters, and this would still be true, because we're NOT talking about the MOTHER of the person in the photograph. The MOTHER could hardly be anyone's SON either, could she?)

Keeping in mind that if you were a woman and sying that, the whole riddle would just fall apart ...

Your solution is indeed correct. For those that believe it is incorrect please re-read it.
