... an eye to the plain, pragmatic past, rather than the showy, charismatic present ...
Great portrait of a great face. Like it.
I wonder what he's thinking.
What a great portrait Julie.
An amazing face. I love the black and white background too - it could be his memory.
Ah! Craggy is good Julie .... Lots of stories behind those lines .
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.K
That is a beautiful, beautiful portrait. It's a prize-winner.
So much in this picture!
Steady on, Bob.
Whose exhibition Julie? It is a stunning portrait.
Fantastic image Julie. Something's definitely on his mind.
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.
Outstanding capture Julie. The photo says so much and raises questions that cannot be answered, only surmised. A classic piece of work. Congratulations.
Outstanding is the word. I absolutely love this portrait! The face, the light, the background, everything is beautiful.
magnifique portrait, il est mis en valeur avec ce noir et blanc dans le fond
Just beautiful. So much character.
WOW, my friend, you knocked this one out of the park. This wonderful portrait set against the BW image is so powerful. AHHHHHHHHV
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.
Everything about this portrait isjust stunning.I was wondering,did your subject know he was being photographed,anddid you ask permission to publishhis photo on your blog?I was once asked to distroy a photoI had taken!!
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.
