Thanks. He's part of my neighborhood, Fred. I love taking Candid Street, but lately it has been feeling too impersonal as a primary means of capturing faces, and as my wife pointed out, it's often just grab-on-the-fly, with no real photography skills involved. So...I've been asking certain people in certain situations, and this guy was one of the people I asked, with the results you see above. Thanks for the suggestion...I'm gonna do that. First I'll bring him a print of this one and when he sees it I think he'll go along with some close-ups. You're kind of intimidating in that regard. I'm nervous about showing you anything I catch. A side note...for me the surprise bonus in this shot was the (light or fog or looks painterly somehow) effect that the plastic wrapped around the flowers lent to the blooms. I had to PS a bit of plastic away from the older guy's face, but overall I like the effect they gave.
