Black and white profile

Was visiting Sydney Harbour again this week. and casually walking with my friends by the Opera House.  I couldn't walk by this guy without taking a shot; very discreetly.  There's no way I'd want to get caught in the act of snaffling someone up in my camera.  However, it was relatively easy to sneek this one, with the iconic architecture in the background; everyone wants a photo of the Opera House don't they?




Engrossed in a phone conversation, or might he have been dictating a new book chapter I wondered?  I'd have loved to have been a random-reporter, that could be fun stepping up and saying, "you've been chosen for the most interesting person I've seen today; can I ask you a few questions?" 

Sorry I've got no valid profile to pass along ... I couldn't interrupt his conversation, could I? We had a mission afterall, venturing onwards to the Royal Botanic Garden.

Amazing dreadlocks, He's a wonderful contrast to the well dressed lady next to him. Wonderful street photography.

A wonderful backdrop to an interesting character.... I'm sure he would have a story or two to tell.

Is that his dread locks touching the ground behind him? Wow if so. I've not seen dreads that long before.

I love it!

I suppose he wants to be noticed. He'd probably be offended if no one photographed him.

Great picture, have you ever had it that someone recognises himself on your blog?

Greetings,

"Is that his dread locks touching the ground behind him?" Indeed, amazing! Not that I'm an admirer of dread-locks, just this whole package seemed good photographic material.

Filip: my bet...chances are slim; I don't think he's likely to find Carole's Creative Corner in a hurry. Haven't done it before this.

I suppose you're right John, never thought of that! I figure he's at the point of no return; it'd be pretty hard to cut them off and lose your identity in an inst. Unless you wanted to lose your identity of course.

He made the picture of the Opera House interesting. I like his dreadlocks but haven't seen that long.
