I really like this Bill. Quite different.
(If you could have pulled the hat down and lifted the mask a little more it would have been so much better) GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

This emits an Antarctic expedition style... perhaps a version in sepia ... though putting your head in the freezer for 10mns is not recommended 🤣🤣🤣

Love this contrasty portrait (Tony's rather harsh assessment notwithstanding). It looks a rather chunky Olly, which appears to have a vertical grip. Have you got an EM1X?

I need your boots, your motorcycle, and your hair scissors...

EXIF says EM-1 Mk. II, and my mind says 'with vertical grip added'.

Reminds me of an image of David Bailey, that's probably because of the Olympus though...

Dear Mr Bailey

You are not Mr Wibblybobble, you're just a very naughty boy. You ought to be more careful where you point that thing. Please have this gong. Humph keeps hitting it and it's driving me mad.

Yours, melancholic* as always, Mrs Trellis of North Wales. 🏆

Crazy good! I love it.
A wonderful portrait Bill and a strong statement photo. Hard to get another person to have such a unwavering, direct gaze.
