The restaurant at Dolphin hotel, Vizag, located in the older part of the town. It has a charming yesteryear ambiance and a live band and is one of the places that foreign tourists often choose during their stay in the city.
The man with the white hair (Indian) presented a picture of the perfect recluse and of course, didn’t notice while his photograph was taken.
Though this is not at all in the same league as your monochrome masterpieces, Wolfgang, I was inspired by them to take this photo.

We can only guess what goes on in this gentleman's mind as he is sitting here, alone from what I can judge. He seems to be deep in thoughts while others are chatting among themselves at the other tables. It's a picture that can inspire you to make up a story. As for the composition he is nicely framed by the wooden diagonals.

B&W photographs always seem to have age but, they are also very direct; there is no colour to distract.
The diagonals make an interesting frame, which further seem to isolate your focal gentleman from the groups. He is contemplative. A scenario drifts into mind, for a shot like this surely has a story behind it!
I have enjoyed viewing this.
My warm regards,

Nice! Like it, although one could discuss the details of the composition.

nice to know that I am not the only weirdo who goes to the restaurant with the camera - you never know when the opportunity arises :-))
I like this picture and its composition. The wooden beams split the image at the nice angle.
Good contrast and sharpness.

C'est vrai que cette photo ressemble à ce que fait normalement Wolfgang. Il semble bien sérieux seul à sa table. Il est en tout cas très songeur. J'espère pour lui qu'il attend quelqu'un.

People watching in the restaurant hey, I love doing this and trying to work out who's who, or with whom, mmm,
Great shot love it between the beams, my the closes man looks deep in thought, great in B@W gives it more of a sombre mood.
Well managed and presented, Tfs.

I suppos you were recluse too to take this picture of the crowded restaurant but with a table with a lonely man waiting to be served. The B&W mood suits well to describe the situation. tThank you for Wolfgang to inspire you!

belle version en N/B, bonne gestion de la lumière intérieure, pas trop forte ce qui donne une atmosphère intime, agréable, j'aime la lumière sur les cheveux blanc du monsieur, distingué, belle réalisation

your love of Wolfgang's work, your observation and inspiration led to a very interesting picture with a story and a hero. The monochrome helps us focus on the hero and his juxtaposition with the other persons and the environment. The concept of him being a recluse works very effectively, he looks isolated due to lack of human interaction and by the characteristics of the setting and the place he chose in it. You illuminated the scene wonderfully and gave it good depth. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

simple but nice shot in sepia
its a photo that creates many
questions but the most important
inspiration is that someone
can write a whole story
