Salty Sea Dog?

By tony64  
All aboard the Skylark!

Shiver me timbers, well, he may have never actually sailed the seven seas... or even been to the Isle of Wight for that matter! But, it sounded better than 'Man with captains hat on'.

Thanks for viewing as always! View large to hear the wind in them there sails!

Man over board!

Tony (I think I've had too much sun)

The Serpentine, perhaps??

A charming portrait, Tony.
You could have had some of our 24 hours of continuous rain, if only you'd asked!

Love this indeed...so much character in his face and a sweetness as he salutes...he has very kind eyes!...also love the visual interest of the backgroud!

There is a sure fire way Tony to find out if he is a true Salty Dog.If he cannot recite all verses of Eskimo Nell and Dangerous Dan McGrew while polishing off a bottle of dark rum,then he is a phoney !!
Good shot.

These characters are great! They seem to enjoy the attention of the photographer.

I always wonder where these people get all this old tat from. Is there some sort of Tat Warehouse or something? And I bet he's never even smelt the sea either. That hat and salute don't fool me. Smile
