I thought you might like a closer view of the Forgotten Man which you can see here.

He woke up while I was taking some photos of an old house by where he was sleeping. He was a kind man and allowed me to take his photo. He didn't ask for anything. but I gave him a little money for his time. It is one of the most interesting faces I have seen in some time. The deep lines remind me of furrows etched with experience. He was in Quincy and I didn't ask his name, so I thought Jones was as good as any.

That is a face that tells a story - probably a story of hardships and disappointments. Great shot Tick!

His whole life is written on his face. Another powerful image Tick, which goes to remind us how lucky we are.

This is an excellent portrait, Tick .
This is one of those that speaks volumns.
Reminds us to be grateful for what we have.... like a place to sleep at night . Dan and I have come across a few in this man's place , it is always heart breaking.
I hope to see this in the B&W challenge.

The man's expression reminds me of one my Grandpa would make when he would pause while telling one of his life stories of hardship during the Great Depression. I'm sure this gentleman has many stories to tell as well. Excellent capture Tick ... you brought out Mr. Jones' facial features perfectly. I like the B & W presentation too.

The poor old guy. His lines really show definition of character though! Superbly done Tick and I'm happy you helped him out ;-)

I'll bet he is a veteran. What a face. One has to wonder how people get into those situations. WONDERFUL capture.

Those are called Character Lines. I know because I have many of them myself and people are always saying...."You're Quite a Character"!

Excellent Work there Shankasarous.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

That's one helluva character impression, Tick. I think there's too much peripheral material to do it the justice it deserves, as the face alone tells the story. Basically, just a tighter crop.

The beauty of this photo is the assumptions the viewer makes based on the limited information we have. A great portrait of this gentleman. Wonderful details and clarity in the photo and a great presentation.
