  • Characterful Beauty

    Thank you everyone......

    Requesting a portrait from a complete stranger does take a little nerve....but after the first success it gets easier ...... I get very few refusals.....just say thank you with a smile and walk on if you do.

  • old & sometimes forgotten........

    You post an incredible gallery of extremely intense portraits which are fascinating to explore, they would be wonderful if published all together in print or E-book format.

    Life is etched on those faces, more so than here in Europe I think......thank you for giving us the opportunity to share them with you.

    Birmingham has a sculpture of a similar looking lass in a fountain ....locally she is referred to.... as....

    The Floozy in the Jacuzzi .....

    You certainly get about Johnny......having enjoyed studying many Street Photographs from Tokyo it is obviously a Street Photographer's dream location.

    A beautifully crafted macro study.......there is much hidden beauty in nature, if we take the time and trouble to seek it out.

    Thank you folks....

    The background??

    It a mixture of a beautiful blue sky criss-crossed by hedgerow branches or bambkes.....it is what the lens made of the OOF areas.....nothing altered or messed with.....told you......it's sheer lens magic.

  • Sign Of The Times.

    I just can't stand the thought of that......

    Can anyone explain why it is that if you don't smoke or vape, the smoke or outpourings from a vape seem to head directly in your direction?

  • Checking the ration book....

    It looks great......except that I don't think you would catch my mum and gran shopping whilst wearing their best slippers....if they had pair, that is.......shoes were worn until they required cardboard insoles to cover holes in the soles.

    Great pic, but=t I wish some re-enactirs would get it authentic sometimes.... It's ok....I was a re-ensctir once, and I lived through WWII as a war-time brat......your ladies could be my mam and a friend....but out in best slippers....Never!

    I really like this because not only is the lighting very beautiful, if subtle, you have caught something of the character of your subject.

  • it was the month of May

    Now you have struck a chord Leo.....my lady wife and then my daughter used to teach ballet.....we used to go to the theatre to watch it regularly .....she is a great fan of all the very best dancers through the 1950s-1990s.

    Thank you for the link..

    Now to your pic......It could be a city or town park almost anywhere in the world, people just enjoying a glorious spring day of sunshine and music. We are all so much alike, I just don't understand differences.

    Your observations and rendering up to your usual high standards......Thanks!
