  1. Oh the depth of this one!! What can I say but ‘WOW’… The Chandanam on hi forehead… the white beard, the expression. You captured it beautifully.
    I read it somewhere…that when a photographer clicks portraits, he doesnt capture the essence and expression of the person, but he captures himself in it.

  2. Outstanding detail in the hair, and I like how the contrasting hair and eyes frame the Chandanam. You caught his head in just the right position and stare in the best direction. You are the best!

  3. Another strong black and white picture from you. It’s always such an inspiration to visit your blog. Of course what makes the picture – besides a face with strong character well captured – is the white mark in the forehead. It draws the eyes and keeps them centred to the face. I also like that the person is looking away this time, it makes him more vulnerable and more thoughtful at the same time.
