To day I felt for this photo from Poland displaying a man from East Poland in full swing....
....discussing some trivial matters....
but harming NO ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!
A fotka where I used to the best a focal length of 40mm
- as close as I could get..(..at the time)
A tribute to a friend - now (presently) only represented at TE with his critics given...
The moderators of this site have stated that Polonaise's account is locked for 7 days
- In respect to him I'll do a little act of solidarity and will not do my next post or critic until after this periode...

A bit of a cryptic note with a very well composed shot. I must say that it displays no signs of being a digital photo, it is that well captured and processed.
Thanks for sharing

You really did find aphot with attitude, grain and strong contrasts in black and white. And from Poland too! And I think it's better not to know who and what he meant with that gesture.

Bravo, JRJ, d'avoir trouvé cette photo pour cette occasion...
D'ailleurs, une belle...
Elle mérite des points mais vu les circonstances, je m'abstiens de sourire ;))).

Bardzo dobry portret... wolna migawka nadała dynamiki temu zdjęciu.

I am weak in front of this speaking photo.
But the note and the reason make me combat mind.
OK seven days I am not existing.
PS. Me too, I am poor boy here: more than 10 pictures I lost here during 2008
Let's have wonderful 2009!

Re-visiting later on : great dirty-grainy photo, a great portrait in your gallery that has not so many of them - and a pity that you are leaving for a while - but that's what I'll also do due to a travel that I need to plan longer in advance.
The old feel in this photo and the expression of the guy : just perfect, bravo !
And best wishes for 2009 !

Hi Jack ! I am sorry I missed this one, but it's not too late:-).
A great tribute and truly excellent stuff ! Very different from what you show here, and I must say, I want more ! The b/w is strong and vivid, the grain beautiful, the attitude says it all. o) Well done, superb PP too. Seems it was waiting in your hardrive for the right occasion...
What would the world be without fotkas ?
