Default Oscar

He was my neighbour. Passed away two years ago. An avid admirer of Borges, like me. This pick is a digitized version of a Mamiya 7, 6X7 roll film.
A strange guy. We shared talks for years, but never got to know him.
Sorry the uber size, but I needed to show details.

Looks like he was a fine old gentleman who took great care in his appearance and dress...his shoes are shiny enough to impress a Sergeant-Major.

Hey folks. Thanks for watching.
Yes lesmore49. His shoes are something classy and everytime I see this pick they grab my attention. They look hand made.

A great portrait shot. It looks spontaneous with a natural look without the posed quality. Its sadly poignant considering he is no longer with us. He has a Don Ameche look.

He does look like the famous movie actor Don Ameche. He has a courtly appearance.
