Seen in the centre of Kerkyra (Corfu) city, Greece. I guess he would have smiled if he had known he would be on TE.

Hats&Glasses. Fine registr of a shopping daily life scene. Simple but very interesting photo, good vertical format. I think, he don't like your photosession. )))

I wonder what he has in that box. More hats perhaps? He does look a little glum - perhaps he should have swapped his own dull hat for that Ferrari cap - that might have cheered him up a bit.
A fine portrait of this man who doesn't particularly look to me like a typical Corfotian. Good interesting and varied colours and composition.
An excellent candid shot.

Or maybe very angry for as model on TE be act.
The man look little bit surprised to the camera.
Light and sharpness are pleasant for look at.
Splendid interior image with the hats in background.
Lovely composition good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Hi Gert. A street scene. A man with a bundle under his arm. Everything looks very natural and familiar. The hat is similar to those in the store. He looks into the camera. What is he thinking. After all, he is likely to see for the first time in his life on a website. Well seen and presented. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Simple street photography with specks of vivid colors. An interesting street shot and one attractive character. So much detail around but that eye is everything in this image and good capture of a dailylife situation. The background gives the man a very fine profile. Love the focus solely on his face, this is obviously the main interest of this pict.
Good contact as he appears thoughtful, intense with a mix of curiousity. He could be annoyed at the camera and wonder what he has in his mind. But this is the reality of the ocassion, a very expressive and engaging character shot. Well done, Congrats

well captured, although he does look like he's not too sure he wants to be photographed.A typical Corfu town scene. AsI said with your last posting, I'm wishing I had visited Corfu recently. Mjust go next summer.

An excellent idea for a photo. I guess that you might have been too eager to take this photo, since he looks very suspicious. If this had been in Albania I believe you had got a smile. The photo is nice and sharp. TFS and have nice day!

I am not sure if he would smile, he seems very serious. Has he just bought this hat? Or maybe another one in the box? Lovely shot in your style. Have a nice day

The man doesn´t look very friendly but he probably had no reason to smile to an unknown tourist taking his picture. There are many fine details and colours behind him. A good daily life view! But I agree with John, he should have chosen the red cap instead...

Wonderful daily life scene from the streets in Corfu, excellent POV and timing, I like the man expression and of course the hat which is fitting with the theme, TFS!
Have a nice weekend, Vasilis.

Well seen - hats everywhere including one on the man's head! The man has an expressive face and is looking straight at you making the picture a very good candid portrait. The exposure and colours are excellent.
Best wishes, Ann

wonderful daily life with a fine portrait of this man at middle. Great depth and excellent sharpness. Those different caps are really very attractive behind him. You managed the light superbly. Great work. Tfs.

Excellent portrait with the expression nad the attitude of the man very well collected. This man arise too very well in this very interesting BG rich in elements well collected too.
Have a nice Sunday,
macjake (70519) 2011-08-21 1:37
poor guy, you caught him in a grumpy mood :)
but its the perfect person to walk by the store with a bunch of hats!
the best contrast is that if you look closely, all of the items for sale seem to be for the younger generation, so this guy seems to be out of place!

I am quite curious about his thoughts while you were taking a photo of him. Indeed, would he have smiled if...? :)
I consider this as one more of those very interesting 'psychological' portraits which you shoot while travelling. Much food for thought! excellent photo.

Hello Gert, You didn't ask him to smile for the camera? I'm disappointed :) interesting expression you have captured, I wonder what he may be thinking? Nice bit of street photography, I see the Ferrari caps for sale, is there anywhere in he world where they are not available? Good colour & detail, a pleasant image.
COSTANTINO (67350) 2011-08-26 7:42
is there any hat for me?
thanks for sharing it with us
the expression of his face is
a little bit strange and I am
wondering what is into thebox
a hat may be?
ourania (48802) 2013-06-25 7:57
this is a great picture, a spontaneous and sincere portrait of the cautious and suspicious gentleman. His look is so intense and curious too and really makes the picture unique. Maybe the answer for his attitude is hiding in the box he's holding so protectively:) And you have skillfully used the hats as an excuse to take this photo:) The warm summer evening lighting and the colours have been captured superbly too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Excellent portrait et expression grave du monsieur, ou peut etre timide ou supris de voir votre appareil :-)
