Almost a Smile?


I was at the market last week and was trying out my zoom lens.

Almost a smile?
Just a candid shot from the market. This elderly man was sitting waiting for his family at the St. Jacobs Farmers Market and after I took this photo of him from a great distance, he proceeded to straighten his cap and his collar! Once a police officer--always a police officer! He didn't miss a thing! He was a delightful gentleman. I went over to chat with him later and he had a Police Assn. cap on and he was retired from the Police and is 92 years old!



Do you like the black & white version or the coloured?

I think I prefer the black and white. I bet the gentleman was interesting to talk to.

I like the black and white version, also....

It shows him sitting in the shadows... (very "detective" like)pearing out from his old man disguise!

Great picture, Pat!

I like the B&W version. He doesn't look his age!!

Gday Pat, I like the Black and white photo I would like to know what he is thinking.

I like the b & w version, two. This gentleman's face shows so much character and you did a very good job of capturing him with your camera.
