    This gentleman is also very photogenic and your portrait is very powerful. I actually expected his face to come out of the screen and look right at me! Exquisite photograph, Susi!

Thank you all so much! As soon as I saw his face I had to get some pictures! He was sitting at the edge of the stage here watching another performer and chewing on tabacco. I asked if I could take his picture and he gave the customary,"Don't break ya camera " comment:)A character for sure.. I think I will go back next Friday and take more!
Thanks again!
