No, that's not my nickname at parties...

That's this man's actual name. Cardi and I go way back. This was shot way back too. I was going for the boxer feel and think he looks pretty menacing in this photo. Those who know him, know the real truth. I know he lurks sometimes, so let's see if this draws him out to make a comment.

camera/film: Hasselblad, 150mm. Kodak Tri-X 100.
lighting: One open head with a frosted acetate diffuser.
post: This was obviously shot in Black and White, but colorized in Photoshop.

Love the look of the photo, I have never been able to get mine to look that good when I colorize them.

Yes he does look a bit menacing doesn't he!

My first thought was "Boxer," so I'd say it worked. :-)

He's not a boxer? Coulda fooled me.

You have such fun pictures, what I love about your blog is that you give a back story to each photo which makes the photos even more fun. Thank you so much for sharing.

I hear he has the eyes of a fly.

"You are thinking of a number between one and a hundred...hmmm...yes, I see it now...it's 77! Is it 77?"

This is true Brian, and also a wall of nuts. Sorry for the inside jokes everyone.
