photoblog image NOT JUST A POTRAIT

NOT JUST A POTRAIT

This is a man who knows how to go through life with a smile on his face. He will never let you leave without a smile on your  face. I whipped out my camera to take his potrait and he said ;

" My face will break your camera"

Me: "No it won't Lee, it's ugly proof".................... He chuckled.

He promptly messed around with his shirt and  I took the shot. This is how I want to remember Lee;  Head tilted to one side, funny expression on his face.  Why? you might ask. That's him right there in the picture, not just a potrait  but everything that he is.

Ada, I looked into his eyes, I can see this man had a tough life, but his eyes keep smiling, that is a gift only few have, Lee can be proud of himself and Ada, you can be very very proud of yourself too, these pictures are stunning, so much 'life'
Bravo to you.
Possibly the best in your series, could be a tadge lightersmile
