Old Man with Young Boy


Photo Information
I liked the contrast between the young boy in the foreground and the older man, also the character in the man's face.

And the boy is thinking "I hope I'm not like that in 60 years time'. Strange how there seems to be more detail in his hair than his face & hand. Good "Street" capture David - I assume it is street.
Regards,
Ian.

Thanks Ian, it was a street capture. I think the reason there is less detail in the hand is that there was a slight hand movement as I took the shot, hence minor motion blur. Not sure about the face.

Yeah, f8 has DOF covered but 1/80s allows some motion blur.

I do agree with Ian about the meaning conveyed only by the partial appearance of the child's head and hair. Very good mono shot, indeed!
