“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph” – Andre Kertesz
Great shot. I love photos like this
Thank you very much and thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. Have a great day!!
His face and demeanour combine to form such a quiet, steady flow through the colour. A brilliant shot Mark!
Hi Patti, i can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful comment. It was a big decision for me to post in colour. I am going to try a few more colour posts this year. Have a great day!!
Mark, I really love the emotion you caught here. I feel like I could sit down with this guy, have a pipe, and learn some things about life.
His face cetainly does show someone that has seen and experienced a lot. I wouldn’t mind having a pipe and a drink with him myself. Thank you so much for your observation, it means a lot.
… and lost in time… The title makes me think of Pink Föoyd’s “Coming back to life”. Great portrait!
That is so nice of you Malin, hope you are well? I love the reference, Pink Floyd are one of my favourites and David Gilmour makes me cry when he plays, just so much emotion, he is the best. Have a great day
My pleasure, Mark. I’m well, thank you.
Pink Floyd are one of my favourites too. And when Gilmore plays… Goose bumps!!! Yes, he sure is the best. Enjoy the weekend!
Great capture, Mark…full of emotion
Hi Sue. He does appear to have a lot of emotion stirring in his brain. Thanks for visiting and have a great day.
This is just jaw dropping in its intensity. What a face. And that hair and beard. Beautiful!
Hi Emilio, hope you are well? We are in a deep freeze in Toronto. I would to have his hair but i would look really funny. He is very intense ro say the least. Thanks for coming by my friend.
You have an amazing talent for capturing the workings of your subjects’ minds Mark. Beautifully done. And BTW, who is Andre Kertesz??
Hi Tina, you are making me blush, such a wonderful comment 🙂 Andre is one of the great founders of photojournalism and is considered to have influenced many great street photographers to have come after him. Sadly, Andre passed away 30 years ago. If only i had just a fraction of his talent but at least I can say we share the same last name. I’m glad were not related, that would be way too much pressure to deal with. Have a great day!

Thank you very much guys!
I love the colour and texture. He is very intense yet looks very comfy cozy.
Thank you my love, he does have a comfy feel.
yeah, looks really lost 😉
Thanks Joshi. Hope you are doing well?
That is a pretty cool portrait.
Hi Shane. Thanks for stopping in and thanks a lot for the great comment. I usually do B&W so im glad people are liking this one.
Love the moment you captured, Mark. A vibrant portait contrasted by his quiet expression. Great job.
Thank you Jane, i love your description :). Have a great day
Oh yes, it is his deep pensive mood that has my attention, in spite of the picturesqueness of his appearance. Brilliant capture, Mark!
You nailed it, pensive is a great way to describe what is going on in his mind. Hope you ended up getting some rest? Now off to work for we…have a great day.
Hello Mark, I had about 3 hours of sleep then went to work – still functioning at about 80% of my intellectual power, so it’s not too bad. I hope you feel rested and ready for your day. Take good care…
A lovely portrait of a man in a meditative state of mind. Great colours.
I wonder what was going on in his brain? What was he thinking? Thank you as always for your observation. I’m very glad you like the colour.
Does he ever resemble Van Gogh.
Wow, never crossed my mind but having just looked at several self portraits you are bang on. Have a great day.
CLASSIC PHOTO, WORTH IT 🙂
Hi Tanveer, thank you so much for your thoughts, it’s really appreciated. Have a great day.
you are welcome Mark, stay blessed
