This is a genuine candid: not posed, and I have no idea who this gentleman is. I felt at the time that only in Ireland would you be out walking, minding your own business, and happen upon a little old man sitting in the middle of a field reading the paper! B/W film (Ilford HP5) processed and printed in my college's darkroom (which is still operational, I'm pleased to say). Neg scanned on a Nikon film scanner @ 4000 dpi.

Great capture! This works very nice in black and white. The lighting is excellent on the man reading the paper. Well framed too. Thanks for sharing.

As you know, I like candid shots of persons, taken without their consent, taken during their today life.
this one is a good ewample, well constructed, sharp and in a really good B&W mood.
