The Albanian Gentleman

Posted by Kim (Tirana, Albania) on 9 December 2009 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

He was hitchhiking in the countryside... just needed a lift to the next village because his knees were giving him trouble nowadays.

A face that has a million stories to tell. If you get the eyes right, the portrait is perfect, which you have done here. Great shot.

Thanks for your comments Nestor and Graham. Being new here, any comments are really appreciated.

I was a bit unhappy with the eyes-- they're not very clear and I don't think the light is really in them. However, I then remembered how watery they were and I guess that explains what I captured.
