We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

My Wife’s grandpa (or Goong Goong in Chinese) at one of his many great grandchildrens birthdays…I was taking photos of the kids playing and came up the stairs and as he often is he just stands and watches them through the window with this deep joy…I aimed the camera at him and he looked at me and was totally unperturbed…He just had this look of total peace and dignity which I can only think is the fruits of a long and fulfilling life.

Nikon D90 and 18 – 200 VR lens.

    Greetings Scott; Nicely done. I like the use of black and white. The color one was great, but this one seems more striking in what it communicates.

    Great image! Great lighting, interesting subject and he totally looks like a nice guy! Excellent!

  • Cheers Patrick, this is actually a candid so the lighting was out of my control to some extent. Thanks for your kind words.
