Subject: [Leica] Nathan's PAW week 4

Perhaps inspired by Don's excellent portrait of his son a couple of
weeks ago, I took my Leica with me to my son's haircut. Our barber, Herr
Kotas, is the best and cheapest in Herrliberg (and as far as I know the
only one...). There is an old Polish joke that one should not trust a
skinny cook or a bald hairdresser; Herr Kotas is in fact bald but he
makes up for it with extremely elaborate eyebrows, as seen here:

In both alternates I made use of Herr Kotas and my son and their
reflection in the mirror; the main difference is that in the first
alternate I focus on the real persons and in the second on their
reflection. I am not sure which one is best, but I think I have a slight
preference for the first one.

All three pictures with M3, 50mm Summilux and Ilford Delta 3200 (rated
1600 and developed in XTOL 1+1).

The main PAW index is at:

and comments and critique are welcomed and appreciated as always.
