Yeah I see that now, I think I need to get my eyes checked.... glad to hear Mum and pups are all doing well!
OK, I'll buy that. It's especially rare for me to photograph humans. I rarely want to 'get in their face,' so to speak. Definitely a cojones issue on my part. When I do shoot people, it's often surreptitiously.
Thanks, guys. Damned if I know what makes it good, though. In colour, it was unspeakably bland.
That shot was made for B&W. Colour wouldn't have added anything to the story. The strong composition focuses your attention entirely on the subject. His posture and the lighting creates ambiguity which adds to the overall effect (hard to tell he's reading). I'm left wondering what has happened to this man.
Really nice job.
