Tullio,

Not even an offer of some Beefeater? to break the ice.

Very nice shot that captures the mood very well. My only suggestion would have been to try and get him to look at you.

Aloha

He would not do that either, Selvin. I stood there waiting for him to lookat mebut he only did once I moved the camera away. How do you call that here?...well, never mind! I guess it's part of the job.

Nice job. Your description reminds me of those actors who go out in public places and play the part of a mechanical doll and then freeze in position. Nothing you do short of hitting them will make them move or smile. When you are not looking, they will change position presumably to relieve sore muscles.

We have one of those performers here in Portland who paints himself up totally in silver-gray with clothing the same color and he plays the part of a mechanical robot. He does an extremely good job at it.

Wow , this is a very nice shot.
This is what I basically want to see in portrait(Plz bear in mind this is my personal opinion). Man and little bit of the surronding enviorment to support the character and tell us a little bit about nature of the person.Here you gave me the feel of the period. Great work
BTW, Tullio , I must say you have an eye for the picture. Keep sharing.Looking forward to more work from you.Thnx

I also like this one. Even though he's not looking at you, you know he's "in" the image.

Thank you Cal, mcliu and nhmom for your comments and kind words. One other thing to mention is that the guardwas very intimidating and I ended up taking only onepicture of him. Luckily it turned out good.
