Shot in an old pastry shop on Easter in Little Italy, NYC using available light . Canon Elan, 135 mm lense (my favorite!) and 3200 TMax b/w print film. He reminded me of my German immigrant Grandfather, who wore a gray suit and tie every day of his 96 years, even for a day in the country to visit us!

    Nice piece of history, Debbie. The times have really changed since then as far as dressing up and down goes. Love those high-toppers too.

Thanks Murry. This was shot just a few years ago, but for this gentleman it could have been the turn-of-the-other-century! :)

Hey Betsy! Yea, I definately went through a TMax 3200 phase...I love the grain! Thanks so much!

Gary, thank you! I'm happy that this one was recognised...it's one of my old time favs....

Dominique, Thanks! I used to be a b/w nut, and I really enjoyed working with it and put in a lot of hard hours doing it...it means a lot to hear your kind words!

Wow. This piece.. it just makes you stop and be quiet.. while looking and imagining the person and how he might've been. :-) Nice touch including only parts of the other faces, keeps you from focusing away from the subject.

I'll be sure to keep my eye out for more from you!

Cheers!
