Sorry to be late with my comments: I too have my off-site periods! This is a superb portrait of a theatrical and I guess extrovert old geezer. The expression, of course (a genuine decisive moment), and the lighting, are excellent. Framing is inevitably impeccable. I'm now wondering when I will start on my Shakespearean "Seventh Age" ("second childishness and mere oblivion, Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything"). Hoefully neither he nor I are quite there yet! Your photograph aptly illustrates Jaques' monologue from "As You Like It": "All the World's a stage, And all the men and women merely players".
It's in my favourites...
