'Brian' is a great portrait - really nice light. Julian - ----- Original Message ----- From: "Lee Bacchus" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <email@example.com> Sent: Sunday, April 15, 2001 4:08 AM Subject: [Leica] Lee's PAW More not-particularly exciting portraits from me this week (http://www.photo.net/photodb/presentation.tcl?presentation_id=52810). The first is from my Skid Row project; Jose is a thankless staff worker at Oppenheimer Park, a small greenspace smack in the middle of one of Vancouver's most desperate neighborhoods. The other ("Brian") flouts a lot of conventional portrait rules < it's busy and was shot with T. Abrahamsson's 21mm aspherical (which he graciously loaned) but for a shot of a guy who's spent a decade working on a Kafka thesis with a typewriter, I thought the effect might be appropriate. Comments welcome, as always. Lee Bacchus.
