That is the world & society........I have a shot of an old Indian with such a hunchback that I had to almost sit on the road to capture his portrait (will post in the next upload). Meanwhile:

A fine candid portrait, Leo, looks good against the red background. Looks like he's had a hard life, too.

Clever how the stripe in his suit matches the lines in the background. Well seen. Allan

Unusually, I think its the background that makes this such a powerful image Leo.

They probably come from a time and place that no longer exists Leo. A superb capture of loneliness.

I've been deliberating over commenting on this all day Leo.
A strong character study made all the more powerful by the red background, the stripes mimicking the jacket, and the gent's style.
It's the title that concerns me somewhat. We can see that the subject is in his "later years", walks with the aid of a stick, and has developed a pronounced stoop, but how do we know that he is lonely? How do we know that he is not off to meet some old friends?
We feel a certain sympathy toward lonely people, as is reflected in some of the comments regarding his pride and dignity. I'm not trying to be negative here, I think, and I've said this here before, that the "Power of Print" can, at times, overpower our visual sensibilities. I know that, personally, I am more likely to be drawn to an image if it has a "strong" title, e.g. "Apocalypse from Above" rather than "Cloudy Sky".
I wonder what others think regarding this.
Still a great shot though. Have a great weekend.

Excellent study of this older gentleman,

I hope that he isn't too lonely in his later years.

thanks very much for the vote and your thoughts, Alan
this gent lives in my neighbourhood, i have seen him many times en route to some local grocery store where he buys some staple foods and he always walks alone, never with a spouse or companion..this makes me think he lives alone.. maybe occasionally visited by his children.. i don't know
anyway, thanks again
cheers
