This old timer may have been thinking about those days. BTW, I really like this shot.

Walter,

While I agree that your first shot is quite worthy I found the angle of the shotfrom slightly above needing adjustment. This angle gives too much emphasis to the hat. I was so much into the craggly old face but the brim of the hat obscured it a tad too much.

I've got a title for your second shot, "Waiting or baiting?" A nice social statement in this photo.

Aloha

I love the first shot. I think the angle is fine and the BW treatment really adds to the shot.

The second shot looks posed to me. I don't like it nearly as much as the first.

Selvin, had the old gentleman not had sunglasses on the angle may not have worked, since you would have wanted to look at his eyes. However, the sunglasses made it a mute point. In reality, however, I really had only one angle available and I took what I could get. I think it worked.
