Moments of fun and joy...
"Violet Life" we were living while relaxing on the famous bridge in Istanbul... Surely we know the man on the photo but please do not mention his name, if you guess/know who he is... Let's have fun together...
Looking up my archives I have prepared few images and bundled them into the series of "Moments of fun and joy"

yes! excellent portrait. I see so much portraits that I found this boring but this one is perfect. The violet, the smoke, the expression. Perfect Jerzy!

Nie wiem co on pali, ani co Ty bierzesz, ale mi to żywcem przypomina lata 70. i ówczesne odjazdy.
Klimat narkotyczny, bez wątpienia.

nice portrait of the man ( i really don't him, i can't guess:)) the viloet tones in the dark and the smoke combine with the expression of the man.. great work,

I know him:
He is Gandalf the Violet :)))
And this is a very nice contribution to "people and light" theme :PP
Or "people and water pipe" shall i say? ;)
I miss those days.
Any chance bringing him with you again?

an excellent photograph, exceptionally high clarity on the main area of the subject, the hazy background is adding perfection...

So what kind of substance makes you see the life in purple and fuzzy backgrounds??? Nice one, Jerzy - the color and the DOF. Regards, Daniel

Despite I don't know him at all, he surely looks photogenic in violet :)
This is a very striking portrait not only for the violet tones but also by the bokeh you got behind with all the round spotlights, also the smoke is perfectly captured and adds to this relaxation atmosphere.

Fantastic, Jerzy. Either Van Gogh or Gandalf, this is a great moment of fun and color/light. He's very well, but I love those balls of light also. His breath flowing out is so good. Love it.

Kojarzy mi się z dżinem, co się wykluwa z dymy, a dymek z butelki czy innej lampy Alladyna :))

I see he's been on the beetroot juice again - my what a suave sophisticated and fantastically relaxed handsome looking person he is (for his obviously advanced years) - Gandalf Van Gogh the Violet he certainly is - you have captured the mood perfectly J.
best wishes Kev
