Very pleasantly surprised this was one of my most favorited photos over on Flickr. It is from my archives from a few years back. I don't remember what I felt right after I shot this man. I can guess that I was quite happy because of his beard and hat-2 elements that always draw my eye because of how they help the viewer focus on the face in between. I'm so happy to have the opportunity to take time and sort through older photos of mine and apply my more enhanced present ninja-processing skills. I'm getting a better response that when I initially shared them so I don't think I'm totally crazy. Practice,trial and error do count for something. So I guess that's the lesson for today-don't give up! Stick with the thing you feel passion for. It might never be great but it'll certainly get better and you'll learn so much in the process.
