This is a candid street shot taken at Valletta, Malta (St. George's Square). This image is a crop from a larger image, as I had my 50mm f/1.4 on at the time. This fellow had already caught my eye earlier in the day, his style and cool attire attracted my attention. He looks like a character coming straight out of a pop-music video or some other "cool" scenario. First time round, I only caught the man's face and beard, and the photo wasn't a keeper for sure.

Second time round, though, I was sitting on a bench* and noticed him walking in the opposite direction. Prepared myself for the shot, and snapped a couple of images. This is the result.

*This is the same bench from where I took this one:

Dave, I guess "cool" is a matter of preference. I wouldn't wear those trousers, but I find it looks cool on some fellows. It's all a matter of taste I guess! Wink

Wenz, it is indeed. Some interesting characters go through that area regularly, so you can be assured of some good opportunities for delightful candid stuff.
