The barber
Contest Number: 115 Contest Theme: Portraits in Monochrome Lens: Pentax-A 50mm F1.4 Camera: Pentax-01 Aperture: F4

I badly needed a haircut and visited il barbiere (barber) in a small town in Italy. The guy was 70 years old and took over the shop from his father who was il barbiere before him. After getting the haircut I proposed to take his portrait and he was fine with it. Somehow I have always liked this shot: tack sharp, his expression is great and on the left you can see his reflection in the mirror. Later I returned and gave him a printed copy of the photo. He was very pleased.

Clearly a SUPERB PORTRAIT in MONOCHROME!!!

So many entries made me distract to "SEE" all of them as they deserved.
This photograph has all that we wish to see in a classic PORTRAIT. Great story in this picture - the description adds making it complete.
Beautiful, stunning, so far from triviality that is present more and more in present-day mass snap-shooting.

I have a real pleasure to nominate it!!!

Thanks, I am happy you appreciate the shot. Funny note: a friend visit the same place some months later and asked about the photo. He was a bit disappointed that I gave him a monochrome print in stead of color
