The trumpeter

    Portrait week ~ number five

    I think I've not done badly with this series - I was afraid I won't make it to the end! This is probably my favourite portrait of the lot which I've published on here.

    You'd have noticed that I only published shots from my Cameroon trip on here. Well, I hope to do a different portrait series (or so) to show the Scottish side of things.

    Thank you all for your comments. I really appreciate the feedback which you've given me.

      I think this one is my favourite as well. Lots of shadows and light and he oblivious. Wonderful portrait

      I think I agree with you - the intensity and concentration in his eyes, and the inclusion of his hands, make this fantastic!
