great capture! appearantly casual… there are much to see in your photos…andy.
I took the photo as he was painting. It took a while because he was always moving his head or changing paint cans. He was pretty cool and was happy enough to be photographed.
Thanks for the compliment Susan. Only my family had seen my photo’s before RB, my childrens comments on my photos were not always complimentary Ha Ha. Unworthy Children hahah
Like the angle on the andy and that your shooting street art. I have a place that has some street art I am wanting to capture.
Thanks Trena its always nice to be featured

he has a lovely face and you’ve caught him just at the right moment – when he is full of light! beautiful portrait
Thanks Judith, he was of Vietnamese descent born in Australia. I found it a bit strange talking to him as he had the broadest Australian accent. Yet he reminded me of the actor who played the assassin in the Chinese film the " Emperor and the Assassin". Maybe you have seen it.
I am sure your feeling for art will come back to you soon. Moving to a new culture can have an unsettling effect on us.
I remember the effect on me when I was visiting Aboriginal centers. After a couple of weeks my world and beliefs no longer seemed important or even relevant. Maybe you are affected to a degree in the same way.
Saying that I thought your last image was a masterpiece. The picture affected me a lot. Its dark subject ( very Germanic ) is something I find enthralling.
All the best Judith
He looks Kanaka (Hawaiian). This is a wonderful candid image.
Hi Sharon hows my favorite Hawaiian. Just catching up and replying to everybody I haven’t replied to, I am lazy hehheh.
This guy is Vietnamese, it was a bit strange talking to him because he has a very broad Australian accent. Its sort of like a Japanese talking in a deep south, US accent. It felt a bit strange. Ah he was a really nice guy and we talked for a fair while...
