Another from the War & Peace Show on Sunday. This was taken with a swirl of smoke from a fire between me and this guy, giving this hazy appearance. He was also exhaling a bit of smoke from his ciggie.
Thanks for looking and for your time. Criticisms and suggestions are welcome.
Also - a big thank you to Hugh (morpheus1955) for his UA and to Julia (NaturesHaven) for the GEA - both very much appreciated!! SmileSmile

A fine portrait from the event, Ann, the chap having a wee break away from the front, no doubt in contemplation of what lies ahead and enjoying a quick puff.
Very nicely captured image.

Morning Ann! This could be a Don McCullin shot, if it were 'real'. He does have a touch of the 'thousand yard stare' which invariably comes from combat experience (not that I'd know anything about it). I particularly love the trace of smoke from the mouth.

Regards.

Unlike Bob I think he has the look of the rookie in a situation he's never been in before and wonders what the hell he's doing here.

Two very different images from your visit to the war & peace show.
