Old Guy Photography

The Old Guy … Images of Russell County … Reluctant Portrait …


Cousin Gene is in town and I thought an updated portrait was in order. Unfortunately at the diner, he was less than accommodating. 

So … catching him by surprise wasn’t working despite several tricks of the trade including, feigning a lack of interest and getting off a quick shot, sneaking up slowly with a quick point and shoot and of course shooting in the area of the subject from the table top while looking away from the subject. He was wise to them all.

Acting like I was making intricate camera light and shutter speed adjustments didn’t work either.

Almost … but last second awkward, but quick movements spoiled the shot.

Close but no Kewpiei Doll … 

An Unguarded moment … The Unauthorized Portrait … 




Next Week Or So … Something along the same line or something current …

I was told by my grandfather that if you are destined to hang you'll never drown. I have never been afraid of water . . .

    • We always have fun Ms Shelley. We’ve been friends for over thirty years. We have had many adventures since he liked to go on shoots with me as a driver and kibitzer. Thanks for stopping by. g

  5. Great series! If he let you take his portrait without resistance, there would be only one picture 🙂
