Taken while walking down Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. The light was fading fast and I have always wanted to photograph this guy for a very long time. He sits outside one of the art galleries making different types of flowers, insects and other creatures out of palm tree leaves and I was very happy to purchase one from him after I took his photo.

Very happy with the way this came out.

So I totally clicked the wrong button and entered this image into the free study when I meant to enter a different one.

Oh well.

Nicely composed. Love the concentrated gaze over the glasses. And, of course, the beard.

I like the look in his eyes. Perhaps a squarish crop to remove the right quarter of the image.
