"Photographers see the world rather than just look at it."
Wow Andy, that is something to look at on a rainy Monday morning here. Thanks!
You found a good one to photograph.
Must be a lot of old food in there.
He obviously gets lots of attention because of his "fuzzy" beard. Wonder how he'd look with a trim?
Back in the day we would say, 'cool dude'.
Old hippies never die, they just grow longer beards and hair ;)
I like the pocket he sewed onto his shirt. Blends right in. Heck, maybe it came that way.
A street corner model and used to the camera...love it.
Boy is he proud of all that hair!
Er . . .
Whoa! I suddenly had a 60s flashback! Only none of us had grey hair then.
lots of hair there!
Jerry Garcia lives!
His hair is just as bad. He needs a hair trim also. I guess the saying is. Don't judge a book by its cover. Read it. So looks like he read you well for the answer he gave back to you. He has a great tan so he is an outside person . Mine you. I have a nephew who has a beard like him. And one of our friends the same. Both have had it for years. I asked them why so long with out shaving guys. They both said. Cannot imagine not having a beard.
That's a serious beard! Sounds like he enjoys the attention.
Now that's a beard. Tom The Backroads Traveller
Now THATS a beard! O_o
We are having a heard competition today, Andy.
It all looks a little scruffy to me. We all have our own style I guess...Duncan In Kuantan
There's a lot of character in that face.. and you've captured it well. I still do not have the guts to ask someone if I can photograph them. The closest I've come is requesting permission to snap someone's kidlets. That seems easier for me for some reason. But I'm glad you have the nerve.. it lands you some fine photos.
How nice that he he doesn't mind having his photo taken!
