Loved the title. Lovely capture.
Wow, fantastic shot. He looks like a man with a thousand stories to tell. I voted. :)
I love the black and white look you manage to achieve with your portraits. Very nice.
Fine portrait, as always – love the background, doesn’t complete at all.
Nothing less than stunning.
Smowy white facial hair stands out.
It’s all been said in the above comments, except how do you do that???
All of the fine lines etched into this man’s face are a reminder that life takes a toll on us, but the look on his face also says that, although he has likely seen a lot in his experiences, he is steeled enough to face what is yet to occur. Many people are used to their comforts. Not everyone has that luxury. A wonderful story-evoking portrait, Joshi.
Awesome light and texture. Hats off!
You always nail the character of the shot, Joshi!
Nice expressions…wonderful capture
Great shot! Love the lighting and the texture.
In deep thought
right choice of profile and BW mode to reflect the satisfied mood.
awesome – as always
You’ve captured the intensity of his eyes…. good one !
Brilliant life lines in this portrait Joshi!
That’s one rugged Marlboro Man.
Is this a low key photo? I think so but I am not an expert. Actually, it is a great photo, that kind the image I love.
Perfect portrait, very good.
Excellent details and lighting with this superb capture!
Yet another terrific composition!
Un superbe portrait. On pourrait juste regretter la taille de l’image un peu petite pour mieux apprécier ton travail.
Looks like a story behind each of your captures!
Pure you to come here and see your work!
Beautiful portrait. : )
cette main est mise sur sa bouche comme un silence mais on y ressent comme de la parole du temps passé avec ses rides
You made his day !!!!
As all your portraits….impressive!!!
Makes me want to light up and I don’t smoke. He throughly looks like he is enjoying this.
One last puff! Outstanding shot.
I wonder how old he is … smoking ages people so much. Love your work, Joshi
Reblogged this on Maria Siegmund.
