Can I ask who this is?
An inspiring photo..
Touches of Frank Meadow Sutcliffe I think!
VE e e e ry Nice work!
Russ: I have no idea as this was a snatched candid shot.
Rafael: Many thanks for you very kind words.
Mike: I had to Google that to see if you were being complimentary. I am honoured.
You ought to let people know what kind of birds he's waiting for, Keith, not a lot about nowadays, arre there?
It would have been sparrows or pigeons in those days but as he will be about 40 now maybe he seeks a different type.
Are you sure he wasn't looking for his old cock linnet? It looks like he might have dillied and dallied and lost his way.
Here we go - time for some more silliness!
I don't know if you like pantomime. HERE'S my version!
HOW COULD YOU!
HE'S OBVIOUSLY A GEORDIE!
That's the trouble with these folk who desert the motherland, sida, they have seveere ack of judgment!
I know I originate from Cumberland, But it USED TO BE Northumberland, so it's in me heart, y'naa!
C M B That should be enough to fuel the fires of daftness!....if not......
Whaye sum buggar else can hev a torn, like!
PS In my book, it's pigeons-Doos- 'cos what's he holding?
AAA naaaa , but de yee naaa?
The aany way a Geordie woould hev a vacant leuk like that on his fyess is efter ee's ad aboot sivven broon ales, and thisun's ower little. Ee might mannidge fower, but that's aboot all.
So, ee caana be Geordie, arreet?
Tell yer wat, skida an his worlass is comin' roond the morra, aal ask him, eh?
yer rang like, cos the laads gorra black & white look aboot him, naa whata mean, like?
Greetings from Serbia!
Thanks izahorizonta. It's good to see you back.
Paul and Mike: He is tearing bits off a slice of bread, but the birds won't come down. They are being cautious because they are fairly low in the food chain and it is Notting Hill in the 70s!
Side Note: This was shot less than 500 yards from 10 Rillington Place.
Thanks skida that's what I had assumed, 'sparras' weregood little pets, but you need a lot of them to make a sandwich!
LATER DUDE! Mike
Thank you for the YS, blai. I don't take many "people shots" and I think this is maybe my best.
Thanks Billy. A compliment indeed from a person whose portraits I rate highly.
