Homeward Bound

I bought a lens last winter and just as left the camera store this lonely looking old man caught my eye.

  1. "I wish I was Home, where my music's playing, home , where my love lies waiting silently for me..." ahh Simon and Garfunkel... I hope this lonely man has a lover waiting for him...

  2. This picture evokes a feeling of sadness, I hope he had a warm home to go to.
    You have a good eye, James :)

  3. The photo does have an air of saddness to it, but maybe the bag has ice cream in it...

  8. Great photo. He sorta looks a little sad but there again with the jacket it could have been cold and he just was protecting his face a little. Excellent my friend :)

  10. I also feel sad for this man, but, he might be perfectly happy to be out and about and doing his own shopping. His hunched over posture saddens me, though. This is a superior thought provoking photo...

  11. One wants to run over and help him carry his bags.

    Excellent and touching shot.

  14. I like Pat's comment. I was thinking he might be getting treats to have with his girlfriend.

    I hate to tell you but there are plans to Pave Paradise - where that photo was taken.

  15. The sharpness of the human figure against the rest almost makes it look tridimentional.

    I have been always encouraged by you. . .

    "black and white "
    They give courage to live really.
