I wonder what he's thinking.

What a great portrait Julie.

cara said...

An amazing face. I love the black and white background too - it could be his memory.

Dianne said...

Ah! Craggy is good Julie .... Lots of stories behind those lines .

Jane Bennett Artist said...

Great capture, Julie. His expression matches the painting so well! The Hopetoun Hotel does look as though it played an important part in his life, but I didn't get the chance to ask him at the opening.

Your portraits are always so wonderful, Julie. You're so talented, my friend.

So much in this picture!

Julie said...

Steady on, Bob.

Whose exhibition Julie? It is a stunning portrait.

Joe said...

Fantastic image Julie. Something's definitely on his mind.

Julie said...

Joan, it was Jane Bennett's exhibition that I went to Tuesday of last week. I reported on it.

I must admit to stalking this gentleman all evening. I took lots of shots of other people too, but always knew where this bloke was out of the corner of my eye. He has a mesmerising face.

I envy portrait photographers...a great shot Julie. So much expression and I really like his hands.

Rae Walter said...

Outstanding capture Julie. The photo says so much and raises questions that cannot be answered, only surmised. A classic piece of work. Congratulations.

JM said...

Outstanding is the word. I absolutely love this portrait! The face, the light, the background, everything is beautiful.

Just beautiful. So much character.

Virginia said...

Oh this is absolutely fabulous, Julie. A stunning portrait - great fuzzy background, light perfect. Superb. Bravo!

All of the above Julie, having those wonderful old hands in the image takes it to a whole new level.

Breathtaking said...

Everything about this portrait is
just stunning.
I was wondering,did your subject know he was being photographed,and
did you ask permission to publish
his photo on your blog?
I was once asked to distroy a photo
I had taken!!

Julie said...

I did not ask his permission. I had permission from the artist and the gallery to take photos at the exhibition. I did not specifically ask his permission, even though I did chat with him on two occasions. I neither asked his permission to take his image, nor to publish it to my blog.

I have been asked before not to take photographs, and I dont. I have beeen asked to delete images, which I have done.
