I've seen this old man before when we've been walking through Cannon Hill Park. I took these at quite a distance and so have used poster edge to give some additional detail to each shot. I think its great that he still gets out exercising this way - hope I'm as fit at his age
Hope you all have a great though probably wet weekend
Thanks for looking

Goodness me - I wish I were half that fit now!
This is a delightful triptych. The proportions of the three elements are just about perfect; the 'negative space' above the chap's head is essential, though I can't quite decide why. He faces inwards or toward the camera, suggesting a man entirely in his own world except for the viewer, intimately complicit - imagine the difference if you had posted the outer pictures the other way round!
Beautifully presented; utterly compelling.

I could never get to grips with skating when I were a lad - I always fell over! Being very prone to breaking bones, I abandoned the idea... A great candid and capture, Helen, you never usually see us old 'uns skating! Very well presented, too, like it.
