Emperor gore vidal
Contest Number: 132 Contest Theme: Portrait in Natural Light Lens: smc PENTAX-FA 50mm f/1.4 Camera: K10D Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F2 
Posted By: 3party, 08-09-2017, 10:11 PM

I took this in the courtyard of a "Dutch Merchant's House" (as they are called) in Galle, Southern Sri Lanka.
GORE VIDAL was the guest of honor at "Lunch with Gore Vidal" which took place in that house.
(Note: Yes, that is a room behind him, opening onto courtyard, but he and I are sitting at a table outside, in the courtyard.)

For future reference, contest photos should be submitted as JPEGs as PDFs cannot be displayed inline, so nobody would see your photo in the nominations phase.

I've gone ahead and converted the photo for you

(not a nomination)

Thanks for converting my pic, Adam. But it was still not included in the contest entries. Right?

Thank you for your time.

Did he have anything interesting to say?

He was absolutely fascinating. I talked with him -- just the two of us -- for 30+ minutes, followed by lunch with him. Send me your e-mail address and I'll send you the description of our meeting. Spending time in conversation with someone who was hyper-intelligent left my brain tingling afterwards, as if I'd had electro-something treatment.
