yeah i talked to him a while. i've talked with him before too.

i asked him what he was writing and he said he was a war correspondent. so i asked him which war, and he said "the war everywhere".

Great angle for this shot and a good focal point being drawn to his hands. Nice work. Enigmatic chappie too.

Excellent recent work [last 12 farmes since I last checked you] Subtexts are so inherent in your work.

Thanks.

~I like how you are chattin' it up with your subjects, esepcially people on the street, it's important IMO to do so as not to exploit anyone while presenting them, but rather to present a compassionate and relatively common understanding of the subject that accompanies an image...interesting character here, and you getting down to his eye level was important and a fine detail in the shot...the grit on his hands is another small detail to pick up on that adds to the frame...one of your best shots, well done and presented~

Interesting shot, I do feel sorry for the guy though... Sometimes life is tough I guess...

For some reason, the thing that draws me most to this photograph is the collection of lighters, neatly lined up in the foreground. It seems that they're significant, but I can't work out why. Good shot.
