patience is a virtue

A man. Just sitting. And waiting quietly.

    • Thank you very much. Manual focus and only one chance to get the shot whilst I was walking down the corridor. His posture and expression seemed so peaceful in that instant.

  1. Great shot (as all your candid photos are), especially if, as you say, it was snapped while walking past. BTW did you see the T Rex menacing commuters in Martin Place this morning (28/08)? I was hoping you were around somewhere with your Leica!

    • Thanks. Many of my candids are taken whilst walking; the value of a manual focus lens. I get less attention from my subjects and better candid shots that way. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Regarding the t rex, I would liked to have seen that but I haven’t been in the city for several days now.

  2. I Am Jasmine Kyle says:

    Absolutely beautiful BEAUTIFUL capture. You got his spirit JUST at the right time! I also admire the contrast.

  3. to remain in him says:

    Did you pay attention oh his hands? – Very expressive. Face is manageable, but hands tells about inner intensiveness.

  4. I hold my breath and watch your fine work. This one gives me goosepimples. You’re not a good photographer, but also an excellent storyteller. Well done.

  5. I used to think that old people were patient, cause they really don’t have anywhere to go, but when I go to a doctors’ for example, I can see them impatient and nagging and bossy while having to wait as the rest of us, and then when they are over with their exam, they just hang out in the waiting room chatting with other people. This one looks very well behaved and absorbed in his thoughts. I like him, and I love your shot!
