We could use a little sunshine in Boston after a week of clouds, fog and rain. I'm not a big fan of the no sock look with dress shoes. My feet always stick inside, yuck.

Gorgeous light, Julie.

Isn't his jacket perfect against that wall, Julie? Like the little dog in the previous shot, he is almost camouflaged.
A beautiful portrait, my friend.

Lovely light. Really like the wall as well, where is it?

This is the park that used to be the tennis courts for the old Royal Hospital for Women in Paddington. This chap is facing downhill and to the NW and in front of him is the park which is usually full of small nippy dogs and young kids. Just across the road from where I live.

Isn't the wall behind these two images just wonderful ... not orderly and yet orderly. And the autumn sunshine hasn't it been just the best over the past week or so. Honey gold just like that wall. Lovely shots.

wonderful portrait Julie! You can just see the stories of this man's life, floating around him as he ponders the past, present and future...

A gorgeous wall, as others have noted-- and I love that he appeared to dress for it!

What a nice photo. Great composition and the stone wall is just perfect as a background for this gentleman.
This photo I will remember!
