Seadog


I somehow suspect that he wasn't really an old seadog, but rather wanted to feel a part of the crowds watching the Queen Mary 2. I wonder if his whole experience was seen through a view-finder!

Terrific capture! I do love "people" shots like this and wonder what their "story" is!

I don't know Al, he has the 'look' of an old seadog to me! Lovely shot in B&W!

Alan said...

Nice portrait and lovely in BW too! Great blog.

And a nice bit of bokeh too.

Thanks for the comments. I have to admit that the bokeh wasn't exactly planned, but it turned out very nice. Pleased you're enjoying the blog Alan. Thanks Grace :-)

Yes, a great portrait. Like all good portraits, it seems to tell a story about the subject

Oh, but he looks the part, doesn't he? Kind of a 'Gilligan's Island'-type character! ;}

AL said...

la fourchette: I knew I had seen him somewhere before!

Mark: I'm very new to portraits, so was pleased how this one turned out. Thanks
