A wonderful expression captured on this young fellow. I think I may have liked to see the whole book and his hands. After looking at his thoughtful face I wanted to see what had put that look on his face. Still excellent and is very thought provoking. Guess that's why I feel I'd like more...........Sandy

Images from Burma, looking at this I think were in for another feast of your stunning travel images Si.
Hope Burma was everything plus what you expected, a country I hope to vist next year.

Great to see you back Simon, and with another first class image. The book is important, but it's the thought it has created in his mind that really makes the difference.

I have studied this for quite some time, Si, but am unable to interpret this young man's expression. It is so neutral that it can be interpreted so many ways.
Fascinating.

A wonderfully crisp image, perfectly suited to B&W, and whether this is a posed shot or a candid, you've definitely captured something of his essence.
