  4. Wherever did you find this fine fellow with the grizzled visage? What a great portrait!

    • Oh…he was just walking down the street and I happened to be driving past…continued driving home…thought better about it…turned around…went back and found him again…asked if I might take his photograph…and he generously obliged. I gave him a card for my blog that I carry in my camera case…I hope he stops-by for a visit…. And thank you, Gary….

  5. Is this a film scan, Scott?………..and taken some time ago methinks?
    A friend at college had a beard like this and he walked around for an entire morning with a baked bean stuck in it……… the kindness of friends 🙂

    • Hello, John…no, it’s not a film scan…made the photo two days ago with the same camera that I use for everything else. I did, however, gently process the image with Picasa….

      Oh…what friends…poor guy with the baked bean in his beard…that’s too funny. 🙂

      • Well congratulations……… a very strong portrait. I didn’t know that Picassa had filters like this. Excellent.

        • Thank you, John…Picasa does have its limitations, but I find that it usually has what I need.

    • I appreciate that, Andy…thank you.

  10. I bet he’d tell some tall tales…..

    September 24, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    • Looks like he might be able to spin a yarn or two…. 🙂

  11. That is so cool Scott how you got that photo. I have thought of getting cards and doing that and asking to interview people, I haven’t managed to gather the courage, I am a chicken, you know. I so admire that….and what a fantastic shot, so full of character. The human face can be such an interesting subject to photograph. Way to go! 🙂

    • I’m glad you enjoyed all of that Nancy…the cards are very handy…they have even helped calm some angry words when a couple of people were rather irrate that I was taking pictures of their building, storage lot, and even haunted-house-amusement-park kind-of-thing. Each time, it was met with “Oh…ok.” And you’re right, too…the human face can hold so much…can tell us so many stories without uttering a word. Thank you…. 🙂

  12. What an absolutely wonderful and beautiful face, and a stunning portrait. I really, really like this, Scott.

  15. Wow, what a cool portrait! It looks like a photo taken back in time from the old west.

    • Thank you, Fergiemoto…from a couple of weekends ago, down on South State Street…I suppose that is back in time…but in the “new” old west! I’m glad you like it. 🙂
