Candid Lensbaby photo from our U3A visit to Tanfield Railway earlier in the year. Taken inside the shed used for carriage restoration.

Despite being in his mid-80s Marcus has an infectious enthusiasm for photography and has since bought himself a new Panasonic G3 . . . .

Good for Marcus, hopefully we'll both be like him one day Wink.

He looks a bit like David Hockney here.

The point of focus with the lb has given some excellent motion blur effect and diagonal dynamic, Bill.

Excellent image Bill.

I'd love to be able to have the ability to enjoy photography at that age and you never know?

A sensitive and beautiful portrait. That's one of the beauties of this art, it knows no age barriers.

I hope I will have enthusiasm for photography well into my 80's!

I've just learned a new word from you today: stonking. Now the Oxford dictionary has a slightly "nicer" definition than the Urban dictionary - but I plan to use this word in future Wink

It just had to be Mono Bill, and a rather thought provoking image I thinks.

Amazing work of the lens and the mind behind it.

Like the way the LB has simulated motion blur, adds an extra dynamic to this image.

Works well for an LB shot.
