Texture Tuesday...The Story eDition

Kim Klassen, in her Beyond layers series, has this quote by Thomas M Cirignano
"Each of us is a book waiting to be written, and that book, if written, results in a person explained."

I wonder what his story is...

I used Kim's new texture 'Simplicity'. First in Softlight mode 100% opacity, then in Multiply mode at 62% opacity with the elliptical marquee tool used to eliminate some of the texture off the man and background.

Great job on capturing a really interesting looking character...I too wonder what his story is.

I'd love to listen, if he were willing to tell his story - makes me think of Hemingway, don't know why ... great capture and texture work.

Great capture. I'll bet he has a lot of stories.

Well . . .after being warned we didn't have a power cut ??. Love your shot . . . Nadege . . .what is going on in his mind? Happy Tuesday, Teresa x

I'm drawn in by the comparison between this guy and the people in the distance behind him. Marvelous capture. Happy TT! May it ADD to your story!

Oh wow. There is a story written in his body language.

This is such a powerful photograph. The old man has no shirt, his skin is no longer held in place by a firm muscular system - and yet his hair is meticulouly combed into place. Is he there like that because he wants to be, or is it because he has succumbed to the adversity of fate? Very intriguing.

Great portrait, - what's on his mind...

Dianne said...

I agree with the others Nadege - a great portrait.
I can't quite read the character... maybe strength and grit but an underlying spirit of unhappiness tinged with disappointments and hurt.

Fascinating image ... and interesting contrast ... his face looks angry yet is body language is relaxed.
