Serious.

Some people are just not comfortable in front of a camera. This was such a lovely, friendly man but when I took the photo, he was all serious. LOL
If I hadn't read your description, I would not interpret his personality accurately just from the image. But it still works well as a portrait.

In spite of his misgivings it's still a good shot. I think they are fearful that the camera captures part of their soul. We are so used to the technical aspects of photography we forget that there are other ways to look at it.

Soulful eyes.

It is still a fabulous shot. His face shows a bit of a hard life.

I agree with Kathy... soulful eyes... lines of life and experience worn on his face.

The journey of a lifetime in his face.

He does look very serious... a bit nervous maybe. Great portrait.

Such a great portrait!

Maybe he was never asked by a beautiful lady like you to have his picture taken.

A fabulous portrait non the less ;-)

Great capture lots of age in that face. Perhaps a little self conscious.

Leana, your portraits are so compelling & moving...I love them all

Love the pic./photo. People can grow old beautifully without the need of surgical operations. A beautiful face showing the map of his life.

Fav. An amazing b&w portrait showing all the markings of a hard life. I would be like him (maybe less wrinkles) if I were to pose - never my favourite.

I’m not comfortable photographing people close up. Your portraits are always fascinating.
