Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 8 June 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I took this a couple of months ago in Bath, the guy seemed really into the fashion of the 60's so I thought I'd process it to symbolise that time.

This week's personal monochrome challenge

Canon EOS 500D 1/320 second F/11.0 ISO 100 65 mm (35mm equiv.)


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

These little scooter things are pretty cool, I had a good career coach who was mad on these things and went away on lambretta weekends. Very cool for the 60's thing, not that I was even thought of back then!
