RIDDLE

This one's for GR!

A man points at a portrait, and then says:
"Brothers and sisters have I none,
but that man's father is my father's son".
At whose picture is the man looking?

Since he says 'that man's father is my father's son' and he doesn't have any sisters or brothers, then he is looking at a picture of his son.

That's cheating GR, but anyway, the answer is simple. You just substitute the phrase "my father's son" with "me" and there you have it.
