The young person walks faster than the older, but the old one knows the road. (Sudanese say).
Il giovane cammina più veloce dell'anziano, ma l'anziano conosce la strada. (proverbio del Sudan).
I loved the atmosphere at Caboshia market,
so I decided to wander for a while
in search of sight s and meetings.
This man was staying outside of a house with his camel
and nodded smiling (but just a little) when I asked him
if I can get a shot.
I want to greet all my TE friends as I am leaving for a two weeks trip to Eastern Anatolia (Turkey).
PS: thanks to Jerzy for a more appropriate title.

Congratulations with this portrait that has so many qualities : sharp and clear, a fantasdic contrast between the white clothing and the face, a good blurry background but above all : an outstanding expression of a proud man so well captured.

Luca! Awesome portrait. Great expression in his eyes, great location, rarely visited country - photo would deserve a lot of praise just for the fact how remote Sudan is! Also technically superb, depth of field is really good, nice background blur. Good work.

bellissimo ritratto il colore candido del copricapo contrasta molto bene con quello della pelle, ottimi dettagli.

the best portrait here for a long time...
everything´s perfect. Hard to believe it´s a small edition with less than 300KB.
And you found a perfect model too.

A strong portrait with a lot of character, once more! The luminosity, the sharpness, the contrasts, the DOF, the composition, and of course, the expression, all this combined makes this shot excellent. Great portrait, Luca!

I've been going through your recent uploads, it looks like you've been going through your archives and have come up with some real gems. This one is really impressive. There is so much pride in the man's posture and expression. I like the white, which is even enhanced by the wide white frame you made. Excellent picture!
Enjoy Eastern Anatolia. It's a fascinating area to travel in. I'm curious to see which pictures you'll bring.
