Wonderful shot. This reminds me of my great-grandfather who was invalided out of the first world war with shrapnel in his lungs, a full army pension, and a warning that he had only two years to live as a consequence of his injuries. He constantly had a pipe in his mouth and lived till he was 84 :-)

Great shot.

that's a nice story about your great-granddad. they're a vanishing breed, the pipe chomping vets ;)

i've no idea what the story behind this guy is. i was taking pictures in a nursing home.

Another great photo with expression! I always wanted to go to a nursing home and take a few shots. How do they deal with random strangers coming in to take photos like that? I've always wondered that....

hmm... i wouldn't recommend the random stranger approach. i think they're pretty sensitive about that kind of thing, actually. i was in there taking pics for other reasons (for their website) and just snapped a few of the residents while i was at it...

~xlnt candid portrait/expression on the subject...did you intend to shave off a bit from the right, by a crop, or is this full frame no crop?~
