Doamne, tocmai! ai noroc ca atunci s-a uitat la tine! e foarte puternica privirea si doare in acelasi timp cand il vezi, ca simti cat de greu ii e. un pic mai putine detalii in spate l-ar fi evidentiat mai bine sau daca ar fi fost mai intunecat, dar oricum l-ai surprins foarte bine! great great job!

batranul m-a onorat pozand cateva secunde pt mine. am trecut pe langa el, l-am vazut si am mers mai departe apoi m-am oprit brusc, m-am intors si am indreptata camera catre el ... a inteles el ce vroiam, s-a oprit un moment, am declansat, i-am zambit si am mers mai departe... wonderful moment

a fost un moment tare ciudat dar frumos in acelasi timp. Am ezitat putin inainte sa fac poza... imi era teama sa nu se simta domnul amenintat in vre-un fel. Spre surprinderea mea, a asteptat pana i-am facut poza si si-a continuat munca...

asa e, cei mai multi oameni obisnuiti nu au nimic impotriva.
au un fel de naturalete si sinceritate debordanta

partea frumoasa e insa cand te accepta sa le stai prin preajma, si le castigi increderea astfel incat nu se mai opresc din lucru si-si fac treaba... si poti astfel sa-i surprinzi si in ipostaze mai pline, mai de insemnanate pentru ei

si daca le faci cateva poze, si te si intorci sa le dai, le-ai facut cea mai mare bucurie :)

This is stunning moment, full of opposite emotions. He is a man who had a hard life, that is obvious on his face, on his pose, his hands. Most people who had such life would be angry in this situation, taking their photo, but this man stood a posed for you. That speaks respect and suffering also and at the same time. This one is one of your best, Alex. Well done :clap:

I was expecting to get an angry response to my pointing the camera at him... Like you very well said. Most people who had such life would be angry, in this situation." To my pleasant surprise, he maintained his decency...

Maybe he trusted the photo I was going to take. maybe he anticipated it's use and message. :)

And now, like so many others it kind of haunts me

Thank you so much for your time and kind words :hug:

Thats a good picture!
I thinks it's the best I've seen from you! It really communicates something!

I wonder how you had acces to that place...

The lines really drive you into him and such a honest look at the camera... difficult to get!

Sadly that where our society is going. Soon we are all gonna be old and our social security is not gonna cover your retirement untill you are like 70 or so beacuse there's not gonna be enough young people to pay it!

Fucking yuppis! xD

Honestly: Good, good good work like I've never seen from you!
Keep on going like this, this picture are really "touchy-feely"
Congratulations!

Thanks man. I'm happy you like it. I didn't have to get access to shoot it. Came across this while walking along the street.

True... society is crumbling...

I'll do my best to keep up with the "touchy-feely" shots :lol:

Lucky man.

I'm working on a little project now. I'm trying to take portraits of people in our society that is there but we don't see them or we don't want to see them (as society).

Homsexuals, People who clean the street, retired people, social tribes (heavy's, skaters,...) immigrants...

I've been listening at someones wise advices and works pritty well. "Create your own themes", he said.

Maybe it can help you too!

About the little project I was telling you is a bit on "stand by" mode at the moment.

I'm a bit busy with university and photographic contests now but I promise I'll be submitting soon!

You are most welcome. I did not feel that I could improve on the previous comments and, therefore, said nothing.

ti-ai ales/nimerit bine spatiul, imi place cum ti-ai incadrat subiectul intre usi! :clap:...si desi nu-i potret si poate ar fi mers sa-l surprinzi in actiune, nu pozand :P,expresie ce-ai prins-o da "greutate" compozitiei si-o face faina exact asa cum e! :) sunt curioasa ce era in mintea omului :giggle:

Mi-ar fi palcut sa il prind muncind, dar cand am tintit, s-a opritsi nu s-a miscat decat dupa ce am plecat... si nu am vrut sa il rog " continuati, continuati ca da bine in poza" ... Fix de asta imi place poza , it makes me wonder what's going through his mind :)

Thx dear :hug:

:( It`s a great frozen moment...but it`s frightening in the same time when I realize that this is the country we live in,where persons who have such an expressive,benevolent face(like a Santa Claus impersonator )have to do all this hard work just so they can survive the day :(

...how right you are (as usual :) )... When I passed the man , I slightly noticed what was going there. Stopped and turned back. As I pointed the camera to him , he indeed froze, giving me a pose... What I see in his face, is a silent suffering...

Thank you for your comment :hug:
