It looks like he has , before stepping intrepidly out into the cold , been reading hard literature , and his faintly challenging countenance is a consequence of reading Tolstoy's 'The Cossacks'. This gentleman , without being ostentatious or affected , possesses a certain style that would be , for the banal , impossible to emulate . He is a young man . One can't tell how young . There is a certain equivocality about him . This , with certitude , adds to His Mystery . And to his charisma. Where is he walking to ? He is a dandy about town. What is he listening to ? One can only guess. He is what one wants him to be .
I have never been a 'ring' kind of guy. I have tried in the past to wear rings but there was always a feeling of unease because they felt uncomfortable. The clothes and this man's presence definitely fill the photo but the rings he is wearing are the point of interest for me.
