Yay ! It’s been a while since the last “blue collar” style shot over here, and this one is every bit as beautiful as the ones you’ve posted before. I’ve always liked the aesthetics of painters’ and other overall-wearing workers’ outfits, and it’s always such a pleasure to see your masterful captures thereof! Thanks for sharing, and I hope to see many more pics like this in the future! :)
He has a wonderful face! (I know who I’ll be drawing later!) I really love your black and white portraits…of older folk w/ their lives written like maps across their faces. And I so enjoy seeing “real” people. And I don’t mean that most of the people you picture aren’t “real,” he just happens to look like someone that would live in my neighborhood, or who I would see most any day of the week. Thank you.
I agree with Pi..nice to see “real people” , also, I think most of us would have just walked past this guy without a second glance, Scott you Â´ve first seen and then turned what could be mundane into something special….its a beautiful photo….I love that white saturation, youÂ´ve captured his energy….:)
When you cover the right part of his face I would agree with the jocular attitude. He is having fun, Scott might have told him something funny, interesting, comical. Or he just saw something nice and interesting on the street. I think he is a guy who whistles at women.
When you cover the left side and look at his right – I don’t know, it is like his sight is empty, hollow or tired in a way I cannot explain.
However, I think he had fun when Scott took his picture.
Really nice. I love how you take photos of people of diff ages. This shot also gets me curious how you decide whether to shoot in black and white or color but for this shot the black and white just works–so simple and nice
