I can only guess Kex!

My girlfriend reminded me that he's a farmer...so I guess those stains are part of the job. I just thought he was a cool-looking old guy in the back of a farm stand.

Hey, I don't know that farm stand. I usually go to one over near Rt. 2A near Lincoln (Gerardies... how ever you spell it).

Nice picture, good lighting. The darker background is a bit... distracting? It looks odd to me.

A group of us are sitting around viewing the old farmer from
Mass. and someone spoke up and said "I know what it is!
Chewin' tobacco." Yup -- guess he's right. Chewin" tobacco

----I didn't mean his BEARD, I meant his SHIRT, silly! The SPOTS on
his shirt........hey! Can one post pics of people on the internet
without their permission? When you take a shot of a stranger,
don't you need a release, or something? I see alot of good
(interesting) people shots, but don't dare shoot for fear of doing
something illegal. What's the scoop on that one? Shu

I'm still working on this. The old guy was so photogenic and the setting was incredible...I think I needed to do some photoshopping to really convey the moment more appropriately. Howz this?
