I took this nearly a year ago at a party with natural window light.

He wouldn't thank me for the title. As an historically very active trade unionist and labour consellor he'd think I'd got the spelling wrong.

His apprearance has always reminded me of Quentin Blake's illustrations of Roald Dahl's BFG. He likes stodgy food like bread and butter pudding, mince and potatoes. He particularly likes custard creams.

Nice portrait, I like the hints at his surroundings allowing us to try to form a mental picture of his character.

Nice shot, - loaded a different perspective in a mod, though I do like the original.
