Walking to Ramkot - 15

: Helen : (Helen is photographing in Melbourne,, Australia) on 23 August 2014 in Lifestyle & Culture.

In general, the Muchuk people remain healthy and live long lives. This man is 81 years old and very proud of his age. He was in the army and is very proud that he served and represented his country.

When I look into this man's eyes I see curiosity, intelligence, knowledge, the past, compassion and openness.

What do you see?

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/200 second F/4.0 ISO 100 185 mm

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!

There is something very 'real' about this portrait . it goes beyond just the image, somehow.

@Ronnie 2¢: For me this is a great compliment Ronnie. This is what I aim for. To capture the 'essence' of a person when I take their photo. I am really chuffed by your comment. Thanks.
