This image was hidden away in my archives and I thought it needed an airing. It was captured in Paris a few years ago now whilst on a weekend break.

Thank you so very much for all your most grateful comments and votes following yesterdays upload 'Creative Composition'. It was nice to read that the image meant so much to so many whether good or bad...

Everything went well at Sevenoaks yesterday.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead, for me I am off to hospital for a pre assessment in readiness for my forthcoming shoulder operation.

Regards as always Nathan

Wonderful - the B&W allow one to see the subject and not just colours. Makes it quite a striking image.

I thought at first that it was a gentleman who had come upon hard times but the quality of his cap dispels that theory. A fine study Nathan.
