I went over to the Hague to see some friends last week. We ended up in a pub called De Boterwaag, watching the Holland v Denmark football match. After the match finished, this fella came in to read the papers. He's a local apparently and pops in often. Willem, he's called. I loved his face and he was lit by the downlights above the mags and papers which highlighted his wavy hair. I grabbed this shot and asked him if he was OK for me to use it, having showed him. He wasn't bothered one bit, gave it a glance and said 'do what you want with it'. I showed my Dutch friend who said that the article he was reading was about 'Doubt' (Twijfel was the only word in the headline that we could make out). That completed the photo for me and I've done little to it other than a crop and a run through Silver Efex.
ISO2000 f4 1/100 -1.33 exp.

Thanks for looking,
