Another remarkable take on Erich, giving us regularly more insight into a remarkable character. I am not used to him in colour: quite apart from the LB it makes him seem altogether softer. Wonderful work.
Thanks for your pm, Ollie; much appreciated.
Very best wishes,
Bill

This shot to me seems to tell us a little of his character - maybe sometimes in focus, sometimes not so much................
Nice work Ollie.

The colour (even if it is a bit desaturated) really makes a difference in this image: the framing too is just right. A very striking image.
