Strolling down an old, somewhat dark alleyway in Rhodes, Greece, I peeked in and found this artist intently focused on his work, glasses perched mid-nose, and deftly brushing strokes across a canvas. What a find!


people, greece

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    I can understand a desire to see this image in B&W, but as it is I like it a lot. The colours are muted throughout and blend wonderfully, and really enhance the candid setting. Great shot Phil! A rich canvas.

  • thanks much peter, the light in his shop was muted just enough for this effect.
