WOW! Amazing Oriental Mona Lisa. The perfect portrait. I just love everything about this work of art. Some people have a natural eye for framing, it appears that you've been blessed with this talent.

Yeah, I agree with you ... his mind is definitely focused on something far away from where his body is :-)

You'ce turned this into a masterpiece with your artistic vision. Love the touch of white at his neck and the tones on the hood. Brilliant.

I'm trying to figure out new ways to say "Thank You," because I feel like I'm sounding like a broken record when I write you.

So here goes ... Tänan väga!
(That's Estonian for "Thank You very much!" Don't ask me how you pronounce it :-)

Okay, I'll add my 2 cents... This is absolutely, fantastically, fantastic!!!
I love the crop especially, and how the hood and dark clothing frame his face. And of course the white scribbles at his neckline... And the cigarette ash that's about to fall lends just the right amount of tension. Just fabulous and a big fave!

Yowzaaa!! This is quite a huge compliment for me, Cindy ... thank you _/\_

You wouldn't believe it, but this guy was actually WALKING down the street with this cigarette. How the ash was able to stay in tact is beyond my comprehension, because Canal St was CRAZY that day!

Only in Chinatown ... :-)

Now that's a definitely a gruesome thought .. the smell of cigarette smoke!!! Gotta say: for a city (NYC) that has passed a "No Smoking" rule ... you'd be amazed at how many people still do it :-))

And I can't fathom the cost that's involved with this habit ...

Thanks so much for your kind visit, Mary!!!
errr I mean, Candice :-)
