Default Young or Old -- Man and his dog

Once again using "on location" shooting I posed this gentleman near the pier.
Small flash attachment used to show detail in the shadows of his face.

Then, took a wider shot with one of his two dogs. I thought it looked good in B&W. What do you think?

If that guy is considered old, I'm facing decrepitude.

Maybe Selvin should have been more specific as to his definition of "old". This guy was the grandfather of the young girl (with this same dog) whose picture I posted earlier. He's probably "only" mid-fifties.

Folks lets not get too carried away with minutiae. If you say the guy is old I'll accept it.
Walter I agree the BW looks very good. It tends to lessen the shadow effect of the hat.
The pose with the dog brings out a certain character in the fellow. I like that.
