Andre's appeared in my PF a couple of times before. He's an amazing man who's personally shaped our town over the last 25 years or so. He was one of the first alternative types (hippies) to settle in what was then purely a farming community, and caused quite a stir as he built a hut out in the bush and fashioned a self-sufficient lifestyle for his family. A successful artist himself, he has since founded the Arts Council, started our markets (now recognised as one of the best in Oz), and has helped develop a thriving community of artists and musicians.

Manual, f5.6, 1/60 sec, ISO 800, using light from the window....a spur of the moment grab shot as we were chatting.
Thanks for looking Smile

Great portrait, love it. Reminds me of a bloke I met once called Talc Alf, who has become something of a celebrity and lives somewhere between Adelaide and Alice (can't remember exactly where though!). Anyone else come across Talc Alf on their wanderings?
