the picture is very interesting. i like how you bring up the melancholy side of the man. That makes it very timeless. very nice
Thank you. I’m glad you’ve stopped by and left me your thoughts.
What a wonderful mood of eloquent melancholy you have created here, Angeline. I find myself drawn in and getting lost in it. Your after-capture antiquing process is so appropriate for this. Lovely work.
Thank you. I think my mood, my missing my father, has shown through in this photograph.. i appreciate your stopping to comment.
The image conveys frailty of older age, not only observer witness, but this old-timer’s self-knowledge and care taken in sampling a remaining pleasure; the ethereal aura surrounding the left hand nudges toward transcendence beyond mortality. It reminds of all I know of my dear father’s expression and how he emotes to communicate through all these years; in this image someone knows (or has known) this elder’s face and all that his expression actually articulates.
Thank you so much for this insightful comment of your impression of this photo. I keep going back to it to study it again and again, and love your noticing his left hand.
I wonder what this man thought of me, I know he noticed that I kept looking at him. I don’t think he saw me take the photo, I tried to be inconspicuous about that. But he did look so much like my father, and as I study the photo…my grandfather that I barely remember, just the beret.
What a picture 🙂
I take that as the highest of compliments 🙂
Nice to see you back!
Coffee does makes our morning full of sunshine. Joy in a cup!
A morning without coffee is a morning without sunshine 🙂
Yes the processing has enhanced an already lovely picture . Loving your Iphonography Angeline 🙂
Thanks Madhu. It was very very plain without the editing, but I loved this man and wanted to be able to showcase him.
It is really beautiful Angeline!!!! I love it!
Thank you Ilargia. Un cafécito por la mañana.
of course Sunday morning is always the top of a week …
That it is! I love a quiet Sunday morning.
Great shot! I really like this one.
Thanks John. I’m glad you do!
That’s a great photograph. I like the grungy look you have given this otherwise quite mundane situation. And the off colour adds to the feeling. Love it. You did some really good post-processing.
Thank you so much, Otto. I spent some time with this one.
it reminds me of a Cezanne….
Thank you Vera. I feel giddy at that thought.
Brilliant photo – so appropriately rendered for the subject matter and ambiance!
Thanks Jo. What’s interesting is that when I looked up from my coffee, and saw this man, my heart skipped a beat….he looks so much like what my father looked like in his later years.
