When I asked if I could take his picture as he was sitting relaxed in the sun, this gentleman stood to attention, replaced his shoes, and fastened his collar. Of course the moment was lost but I just had to photograph him.
What a lovely man.

sometimes that 'self representation', fastening the button etc says more about the person than an informal candid could, this seems a case in point, and the contrast between the formal/informal gives the image an extra touch of tension.

Yes Mavis, he must be a gentleman.Some would have told you to get lost !! The poor chap sitting here for a quiet bit of reflection.Shoes off,cursing his wife for buying them a size too small.
Rubbing his aching corns and bunions,and you come along and ask for a pic !! I hope you at least gave him a foot massage afterwards,to relieve his pain and suffering ? A face here that could tell a thousand stories.Well, a thousand and one now,after meeting you !!
Mick.

A picture of a real gentleman - who wanted to be presented in a respectable way. I love this and your explanation makes it very poignant.
