one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
He's searching his pockets, looking for a match...which he eventually found.
Oh, what a great portrait! The lines in her face tell so much...as does the ciggie!
Lovely shot - I really like the high-contrast B&W.
Hi contrast b&w - YESSSSS that's the way! Another of your fantastic portraits, well done Jilly!
Nathalie is right, the BW is the one. Sad the effects of smoking and I presume time in the sun have had on his face. Great portrait nonetheless.V
Yes! The B&W is indeed the most striking (no pun intended). Is the subject a he or a she...comments use both. I think it's a male, looking like "a tough old bird."
Kate, definitely a 'he.'
Excellent portrait! And, in this case, the high contrast black and white really fits his craggy face. Good job.
I am a sucker for people who have survived, put me in a room with a twenty and eighty year old and I know immediately who I will sit down next to.While I am always drawn to B/W, stick to your color original, I like the fact that we can see the interior of the shop, cafe?Photography is always about capturing a moment, which you did.It is OK to crop and convert a color to B/W, but never go back and photoshop out details, you do not need to.I love your work and your blog.X David, NYC
The B&W really underscores the effect of life on his face.
Jilly, you have done it again with another amazing portrait that tells us much. The b/w is the "the one" for me.
Black and white has to be and I recognize that look myself. The moment of despair when no light to be found.
c'est une photo qui parle de l'augmentation du tabac ;_)
