Really quite a character. He must be close to 100 years old if not more. This shot would have been a good contender in the "personality" challenge too.

WOW, excellent detail in the wrinkles of the skin! This is a very excellent photo. His expression appears to be a little bit of daze "perfect :-)". The square cropping helps this image also. 9 -BB

A great character study, honestly presented. I'll be curious to hear more about him, although the picture speaks for itself.

He looks like a lager than life character - and what an excellent title to accompany this compelling portrait.
