Peaky by graemestevens

Peaky

You're a bad man, but you're our bad man.

For those of you who are prone to wondering about such things, this is - at this point in time - a completely natural portrait, hat and all. As they say, this is me.
Very Yousuf Karsh(ish) portrait.

Hi Graeme
June 7th, 2016  
@bill_fe Alright guv'nor?
@trinda Thank you very much indeed :)
@joysabin Now that's a compliment that I'll take and run with :)
June 7th, 2016  
Handsome is as handsome does, or so they say! Super portrait, Graeme! :)
June 7th, 2016  
@juliedduncan Thankyou kindly, much appreciated:)
June 7th, 2016  
Nice selfie!
June 7th, 2016  
@radiogirl Thank you very much:)
June 7th, 2016  
You look like you are going to solve a mystery in the dank London streets. :) Nice selfie.
June 7th, 2016  
@rosiekerr I'd prefer it if I was creating mysteries ;)
June 7th, 2016  
Great lighting and love the capture of smoke. a very intense look!
June 7th, 2016  
@btwebb thank you very much - the hard part was keeping my eyes open...it's true what they say, the smoke does get in your eyes!
June 7th, 2016  
Very cool portrait, I like this a lot! This gives me a vibe of an old-time newspaper boy who grew up and became the manager of an underground bare knuckle boxer... wait... maybe you're the bare knuckle boxer?
June 7th, 2016  
what @kerosene said... has a wonderful gritty yesteryear feel to it
June 7th, 2016  
@kerosene I can be either one...you never know until I introduce myself ;)
@northy Thank you very much :)
June 7th, 2016  
Wonderful portrait!!
June 7th, 2016  
Or from Peaky Blinders
June 7th, 2016  
More than excellent, as always!
June 7th, 2016  
@kwind Thank you very much :)
@dawnee Indeed, but the hat and the smoking is about all I have in common with Thomas Shelby!
@domenicododaro Thank you very much, far too kind.
June 7th, 2016  
This hat is meant for you. Very impressive.
June 7th, 2016  
@yaorenliu Thank you very much :)
June 7th, 2016  
I would like to think you drive around with this hat on, yelling at young whipper snappers.
June 7th, 2016  
@karlow75 I would hate to disappoint you, so I can reliably inform you that in winter (because my hair is definitely not getting any thicker) I do indeed drive around in this hat, in my big black car...and I have yelled at a few whipper snappers in passing. Truly.
June 7th, 2016  
Hope you don't have any razor blades in that peak.. love the shot. The lighting is perfect and the smoke tops it off. Fav
June 7th, 2016  
@katrinanz Thank you very much - I only ever use razor blades for shaving myself. I have plenty of axes. ;)
June 7th, 2016  
ha. I imagine an axe would be quite difficult to hide in a cap..
June 7th, 2016  
You look even meaner than ever in this image! Superb portrait though.
June 7th, 2016  
@katrinanz I think if you're carrying an axe there's no real need to hid your intentions ;)
@vignouse Thank you very much - it was struggle to keep my eyes open...the smoke really does get in them...
June 7th, 2016  
A super cool selfie. Love the wisps of smoke - fav.
June 7th, 2016  
@paul10 Thank you very much :)
June 7th, 2016  
Our bad man indeed. And we wouldn't be without him. Love this honest portrait
June 7th, 2016  
This is very good :)
June 7th, 2016  
Horrifyingly pretty ;-)
June 7th, 2016  
Love it! Such a magnificent portrait.
June 7th, 2016  
Great portrait- love this shot!
June 7th, 2016  
Really fab...I thought it was a candid at first!
June 7th, 2016  
Intense!
June 7th, 2016  
Fab portrait! It's the cap and the smoke what does it. But bad men don't look like that - they look like politicians and bankers!
June 7th, 2016  
Clever shot...Fav
June 7th, 2016  
perfect capture
June 7th, 2016  
very impressive! Fav!
June 7th, 2016  
Another great shot.
June 7th, 2016  
Fav, well done for selfie. Still very much you, even if a bit less scary way than usually :)
June 7th, 2016  
I am old enough to remember the Andy Capp cartoons in the British newspapers......
June 7th, 2016  
@alinz As am I - lets not draw a comparison there... ;)
@susale Thank you very much - see, I always said I was big pussy cat ;)
@johnfalconer Thank you very much :)
@jerome Thank you very much :)
@shazzym Thank you very much :)
@tonygig Thank very much :)
@yrhenwr LOL, you're quite right of course - maybe I should don a suit and start shouting about nonsensical policies!
@taffy Thank you very much :)
@alophoto Damn near, damn near ;)
@jclaireyp Thank you so much :)
@grammyn Thank you very much :)
@guysnape Yes, I know - the sooner I get over these rakish good looks the better ;)
@hermann Thank you very much :)
@pistache Thank you so much, far too kind :)
June 7th, 2016  
Great portrait! Love the hat as well :-)
June 7th, 2016  
You nearly look normal ! Great shot !
June 7th, 2016  
Awesome self portrait with eyes that seem to follow me around the room which is just a little bit freaky!
June 7th, 2016  
robert redford came to mind. heavens, no! you don't look like him at all. he just popped in my head, is all! :-D

a rather nice selfie, Graeme.
June 7th, 2016  
Awesome!
June 8th, 2016  
@ukandie1 Thank you very much :)
@summerfield Thank you very much - and no, I don't...which is probably a good thing ;)
@candidzen I see all ;) And thank you very much
@pasttheirprime Nearly...well, I wouldn't want to look completely normal...what would the neighbours say!
@hiro Thanks very much - thing is, my hair isn't getting any thicker, so I have to succumb to the ravages of time and invest in a hat
June 8th, 2016  
hello! love the smoke and texture on the hat! oh and a great face ;-)
June 8th, 2016  
Excellent shot. You really are a fan! (Netflix just killed my attempt to keep going with season 3).
June 8th, 2016  
@sketch2 We don't have Season 3 here, so when you do it going...no spoilers please ;)
@tracie8266 Thanks...it's the only face I have ;)
June 8th, 2016  
@graemestevens They're geoblocking like crazy atm. I do have another way of getting hold of it, though...
June 8th, 2016  
@sketch2 I won't say a word...all I know is I want more but have to wait "patiently" here in sleepy old New Zealand
June 8th, 2016  
Those fags will kill you Graeme. Best to give them up. Heard of Champix? Helps you stop smoking and gives you the most fantastic dreams that you remember when you wake up. Just think of all the nightmares you could have? You'd love it....
June 8th, 2016  
btw, I really love this portrait. One of your best!
June 8th, 2016  
awesome stuff graeme, you look like a book cover gritty sherlock holmes emerging from a smoky london street
June 8th, 2016  
You're smoking HOT- hA!!:):)
June 8th, 2016  
@joemuli Ba boom, I see what you did there ;)
@izzyromilly Thank you very much :)
@shepherdmanswife Thank you - I have tried Champix, but I already have those kinds of dreams, so "doubling up" on them was unbearable. Likewise with Zyban. The patches were interesting as well in that they left big "burn" like marks on my oh so delicate skin.
June 8th, 2016  
An excellent hat is always an excellent investment. Nicely done :)
June 8th, 2016  
@graemestevens you make me laugh. Thank you as going through a tough time at the mo. How about will power? You must have lots of that!
June 8th, 2016  
@shepherdmanswife If there's a bad habit available, I'll have it ;)
@littlequeenie Thank you very much :)
June 8th, 2016  
@graemestevens I thought so....
June 9th, 2016  
wow - very intimidating look - fantastic -
June 10th, 2016  
A cracker ....
June 10th, 2016  
@jocasta Thanks very much - this is how I normally look though...
@jack4john Thank you very much :)
June 10th, 2016  
Peaky Blinders?! Mega cool portrait!
June 10th, 2016  
@overalvandaan Definitely Peaky Blinders - I love that show. I may be addicted.
June 10th, 2016  
okay Sherlock :)
June 11th, 2016  
I found Peaky Binders - now have to find time to watch
June 11th, 2016  
@annied It's a fantastic series...I'm completely addicted
June 11th, 2016  
It's a great series. Good face Graeme.
June 12th, 2016  
@gamelee Thanks very much, and yes, it is
