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.
nice i love b&w photography
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.
Your tag says it all
Very good photo!
There was a new moment with its own powerful expression. A
Still an excellent image Mavis.Lovely toning.
It shows he has some self respect....a commodity in short supply it seems lately!
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 !!
A wonderful image captured well and indeed speaks volumes about the self respect this gentle man has for himself and the respect he wishes to show others thanks for sharing Colin
