Julie, this is just perfect.

PurestGreen said...

I love this photo, the softness of the light. I also think I may have been walking behind this man while out shopping today.

Lois said...

Wow Julie, you really have a good eye when it comes to finding pictures! This is great.

Aileni said...

Nicely caught.
I have more on top, but not much. We could be equal round the front though.

Sistertex said...

Great photo, good eye for interesting shots. I love candid people photos.

RuneE said...

I think I'll never take the bus again... :-)

Tulsa Gentleman said...

If he were to pull it all up on top into a bun it might cover up his balding head. I like candid shots like this.

Oh gee! This is great!

Riet said...

What a great picture Julie. I wonder if he ever noticed you making this picture. So funny.

awarewriter said...

How very human. I love this image. It says so much about this man and from the back no less.

Joan Elizabeth said...

What a wonderful tribute to the 'man' behind the wheel, which allows so many people to get to and from their destination.

Guess that there are many times unknown stories just in front of us, and it would be a joy if people would speak with eachother again.
Brilliant photography.

Please have a nice Sunday.

Great shot, I picture him in deep thought as he gazes out of the window. You have a very lovely blog.

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Carver said...

Hello Julie,
I need your eye. Yes, I have to select 5 photos (about automn season). I took them yesterday. Could you please give me your opinion. Today I'll select 10 and I'll put them in my blog.
Thank you very much.
Serge

ponytails on old men... bad!

BaysideLife said...

Great subject for your monochrome. Interesting that this would catch your photographic eye. But the picture is really intriguing. Ponytails on older men make me think they have an unique view of life.

AWANG said...

Hi Julie,
You captured its beautifully in B&W.
Well done !!!.

Dina ... UK said...

This is a very good image, but so very funny....
Did you ask first?...LOL

Irene said...

Thanks a lot for your comment!
I love your photo and think you have an eye for interesting shots!

Sylvia said...

Wonderful shot! The hair makes us wonder what the face may look like!

In Three Rivers, Michigan said...

Oh yes, and it creates a story, about what he is looking at out the window, oblivious to how he looks to others.

I imagine he heard you clicking away and wondered what in the devil you were taking pictures of... Makes me smile.

Dragonstar said...

An excellent candid shot! I love the way he apparantly suspects nothing.

Julie said...

I don't think he had any idea. It spoils it when the subject realises. They instantly pose!

He was as interesting from the front as he is from the back. The sort of man who is very comfortable in his own skin.

Jilly said...

What a shot - you see so much detail and mix in the greys.

Maria Berg said...

I love to look at people while I am out in town an get this fun shots. MB

Shelle said...

I was wondering if he knew you were taking this picture...but it looks like Michael might have been the subject.
